Sea turtle saved from fish net in Maldives


This 8 October 2019 video says about itself:

Struggling Sea Turtle Saved From Fish Netting In The Maldives

“Sailing to the Baa Atoll in the Maldives with Voyages Maldives, our captain Abdula noticed a struggling turtle. I gathered my mask and fins and jumped in the ocean in a bid to save the turtle. When I got to the turtle, it was wrapped up in a fishing net and so exhausted that it didn’t put up a fight when I grabbed it. I brought the turtle back to the boat where the crew managed to cut the tangled net free.

Abdula estimated that the turtle had been struggling like this for 4-5 days and the net had cut into its neck. As seen in the video the turtle swam free. It is however very sad imagining how much marine life get caught in ocean pollution and aren’t as lucky as this little turtle.”
