„Headstarting“ involves the captive rearing of hatchlings from eggs collected in the wild. The hatchlings are held for several months to help them avoid high mortality in their first year (Heppell, Crowder and Crouse, 1996). In 1999, we tried headstarting on 18 hatchlings from Tajba national reserve in South-Eastern Slovakia. The hatchlings, which were clutched in two nests, were marked using a marginal notching system to enable the identification of recaptured individuals. Two turtles were recaptured by 2010. After 1999, the headstarting program in Tajba national nature reserve was completed. Emys orbicularis
