This actually made me cry. This poor sea turtle is swimming along – with his neck wrapped in a plastic bag. A hazard that, sadly, all marine life have to face in this day and age. This turtle would have surely died if not for some sea kayakers that happened to be nearby! Watch the kayakers rescue this beautiful sea turtle in the video below and regain a little faith in humanity.
It’s so sad that these animals need to be put in harms way by the waste that we dump into the oceans, whether by accident or on purpose. This was a sad reminder that we need to keep ever vigilant about how we dispose of our garbage and recyclables – the lives of all animals depend on it!
