A Sea Turtle Is Rescued By A Diver, Then Says 'Thank You'

Curated by

This is the reality of what our junk does to animals in the ocean. There aren't always humans dressed as Power Rangers around to cut shit off flippers though, so the reality is actually a bit darker than this. (And honestly, we will never know if this turtle survived with his injured flipper.)

We made it a mess, but we can also fix it. Now I just gotta find my Power Rangers jammies ... er, I mean wetsuit.


Original is by Colin Sutton and Cameron Dietrich, and was found on GoPro's YouTube channel. Thanks to GoPro for spreading the word about endangered species, ocean health, and kick-ass humans like this guy, whose outfit I will now stop making fun of cuz it's actually pretty cool. Also, apparently these in-the-right-place-at-the-right-time guys were out spearfishing. I'm not sure how I feel about that, to be honest, but that's a discussion we can have later.

Hi there, internet friend. We need to talk. You're using a painfully old web browser, and frankly, it's getting a little weird. It's not safe, and we want the best for you. We think it's time to upgrade.

Download Google Chrome, and try it for a week. Don't think about it, just do it. You'll thank us later.
