A pair of sea turtles on sale in a Papua New Guinea food market had a lucky escape back to their watery home thanks to the animal-loving efforts of Arron Culling and co-worker Mark.
Arron and Mark bought both turtles and drove them up to the beach to release them back into the ocean.
Arron wrote on Facebook, “Found these at a local market. Got them for 50 bucks, drove 5km up the road and let them go.”
And this isn’t the first time Arron has rescued turtles — he’s already bought and released 10 other turtles.
Many varieties of sea turtles are endangered because marine turtle fishing continues to be legal in many countries.
Thanks Arron, your amazing work wins you this week’s Animal-Savior-And-Good-Guy award!
