This really made me cry. This poor ocean turtle is swimming on – with his neck covered in a plastic pack. A danger that, unfortunately, all marine life need to confront these days. This turtle would have definitely passed away if not for some ocean kayakers that happened to be close-by! Watch the kayakers rescue this wonderful sea turtle in this video and recover a little confidence in humanity.
It is very sad because these animals should be placed in harms way by the waste that throw away into the oceans, whether coincidentally or intentionally. This was a sad reminder that we have to keep ever cautious about how we discard our garbage and recyclables – the lives of all animals rely on upon it!
