Olive ridley turtles rescue

Olive ridley turtles rescue

Our TGI Maldives’ team recently rescued two olive turtle that were entangled in a ghost net.

Ghost nets are a growing environmental issue across the world’s oceans, responsible for the death of millions of marine organisms. Attracted by the algae in the nets, turtles often get too close and can get trapped, leading to suffocation, starvation and eventually death. Rescued sea turtles around the world are often severely injured with missing limbs.

A big thank you to the team for their help in saving these turtles and removing the net from the ocean.
