Not every story about marine animals caught in fishing gear ends this beautifully, so it’s important to recognize when one does.
Our story involves a beautiful green turtle, a small Island, a fishing line, and a lot of people from different countries…
A few weeks ago, we posted about an injured Green Turtle and its surgery.
After only 15 days from the surgery, the turtle is stronger, eat tonnes of seagrasses and squid, and swim during the day!!
We hope to release “Champ” in the next few weeks….
Remember, human fishing gear represent the single greatest threat to sea turtles worldwide! Our Champ lost the front leg and almost the life because of a single fishing line…
This single event, remind us the importance of cleaning frequently beaches and reefs. We all can make a difference, no matter how small!!
We could not save Champ without the help of: Peter Loong, who gave us the opportunity to keep Champ and hosts the vets on the Island; Jessie, Robin, Rayner, Nabil, always ready to help h24; Dave, Cat and Dionee from Scuba Junkie; Alessio, Joachim, Katie and the other volunteer from TRACC; Dr Pakee and his colleague from Wildlife Rescue Unit; Our guests Janet, Peter and Bernie;…. and a special thank go to the amazing Talor!
“Sea turtles will look you in the eye. If you get a little twinge when they do, it’s because they’re looking into your soul, and you’re looking into theirs.”
