I saw this through direct email, and it was simply wonderful! Even animals that we consider less intelligent have the plain respect to say thank you. Why can't we?

I don't know if that was what the turtle meant. He wasn't moving his left front leg so maybe it was injured or just stunned I hope. Maybe he was just swimming in a circle not being able to use his leg. Maybe after they got the things off the turtle recovered. I hope so! I am glad they tried to help it.

A beautiful rescue. The truth is that we are indeed the most dangerous and invasive species. What a memorable moment for that diver.

Thank you for helping him. I pray he managed to live despite the injured flipper. It is a shame that this crud is everywhere hurting animals everywhere. Life can be so disgusting.

Sometimes us humans step in and help our amazing sea life that suffers from boaties and fishermens' neglect.
Thanks so much Christeen for sharing:)

I am quite concerned, that the turtle did not use his left flipper to swim, after ht diver, so kindly, untangled it.

One can only hope that the muscles needed time to recuperate.

Wonderful to see the rescue, Sea Turtles face various dangers and it is sad to see that human made objects are part of that danger. Hopefully this sea turtle recovers entirely.

Great video! Animals are intelligent and DO have feelings, but humans are often to stupid to understand their language. We can learn alot from our animals friends....

Glad to see this turtle in desperate need being helped. I hope the tangled mess didn't leave its leg injured or that it heals quickly. Acts of kindness like this do help to restore my faith in humanity, to some degree. Just wish I would see much more of this than the cruelty I see and/or hear about. A sincere THANK YOU to the man/men who helped this poor creature - it seemed to be appreciative. In any case, it was beautiful. Thanks for sharing it, Christeen.

What a great and humane way to do good for an innocent creature as to save her/his life.
I hope the turtle is doing well and happy.
