Saving a marine turtle!
A happy and free green turtle
On our last day in Long Island in Whitsundays, me and Elaine did a one hour track to an isolated beach on Sandy bay. As soon as we arrived, Elaine noticed a marine turtle stuck in between the mangroves branches. It wasn't moving and it looked dead. It probably got caught by surprise by the ebbing tide (the tidal range in those islands can be pretty large). I decided to investigate and when I got close I noticed that it was still alive! I picked it up and it started to flap its flippers like crazy! I put it down at the beach and took some pics. Soon after it went back to the sea. Later I read that this time of the year the green turtles swim close to the islands to procreate. Happy to have saved an endangered species!

Thank you very much! Now do not often see such good people. Basically all have harmful think about nature. People have recently become a soulless, and it scares me.

The green turtle or also known as Chelonia Mydas is an endangered specie. I am really happy to find out that there are still good persons like you, who cares and protect those innocent animals.

These amazing creatures are quite unusual and very nice. It is great that you managed to memorialize those pretty turtles in their natural habitat.
