Hero Saves Turtle at Sea: Thrilling Video Clip

Hero Saves Turtle at Sea: Thrilling Video Clip


Watch as a man kayaking Oman’s remote southern coast comes upon a sea turtle tangled in a discarded fishing net. Abandoned fishing nets and plastic litter are a huge problem along Oman’s 1,600 kilometers of coastline, especially in the more remote regions that are rarely visited. While there is so much work to be done to clean the coastal waters and beaches, we can all take heart in this small act of kindness that has set one very grateful turtle on his way.

Perhaps a program could be put in place, whereby people could be paid for cleaning the beaches of all that garbage. Thankfully, this man came along when he did, and saved one precious life.

That amount of rubbish is disguting. How could the government not care about that?

So glad that turtle was a lucky one.
