Saving Private Turtle
Divers rescued turtle from fishing lines
Despite all the environmental measures and 24h ranger’s work in the 30-mile guarded zone,even at the Cocos island can be found unfortunate animals with remains of fishing gear. We managed to save one turtle with the "decoration" - fishing line wrapped around the forelegs and neck. Holding the turtle was very hard - it certainly didn't understand our good intentions. But all ended well.
