This article presents the first results from a management and monitoring’s project of chelonians in the “Reserva de Fauna Salvatge de l’Illa d’Audi” (Wildlife Reserve of Audí’s Island). This project (still in progress) includes chelonian conservation actions (eradication of exotic species and habitat improvement actions) and restoration actions (pilot reintroduction of the Mauremys leprosa with biometric monitoring and behavioural / adaptability of specimens in reintroduction's space). This study shows the results of the annual campaigns from 2009 to 2012. According to the data obtained in these four years, Trachemys scripta population's density has reduced. The pilot terrapin’s reintroduction has achieved the first positive results: it has been controlled between 84% (year of release) and 30% (years after) of the reintroduced animals. The biometric and distribution data indicate a good physical adaptation of the species into the reintroduction habitat and also it has been confirmed the reproduction of Mauremys leprosa in the wild two years after reintroduction. The recovery of lagoons and habitat conservation actions carried out are believed to help increasing the terrapin’s vital domain in the space, contributing to the maintenance of wetlands in the Wildlife Reserve.
