A sea turtle has been rescued from sea garbage off the coast of Koh Racha, south of Phuket, yesterday.
At about noon lifeguards on Koh Racha were helping to bring a big pile of sea garbage back to the beach. In amongst all the flotsam and jetsam they found a sea turtle stuck in fishing nets.
They helped untangle the sea turtle from fishing net. No wounds were found on the sea turtle and it appeared in good health.
The lifeguards released the sea turtle back to the sea.
Big thanks to the Koh Racha lifeguards for helping remove some of the rubbish floating around the Andaman Sea and for helping this little sea turtle.
