Turtle Tuesday

Start your week off with this video of a unique Coast Guard rescue.

Posted by Go Coast Guard on Monday, June 29, 2015

I've never tried embedding a Facebook video on Blogger before, but this is too good to not share. Poor turtles shouldn't have to tangle with our stupid plastic, but since they did, at least they got some good help in time. This is actually the 2nd turtle rescue video I've run across recently, but this one's especially nice due to the alacrity with which the turtles zip away once freed - the other one, the turtle wasn't moving the flipper that had been the most entangled and I wasn't sure of his chances. This one, they look good. Go Coast Guard indeed!

This video is heartbreaking and heartwarming all at once.

That's exactly what it is.

Lovely that people cared enough to rescue them, sad that it's somebody's carelessness that put them in this spot in the first place.

And this reminds me, I must have another go at a zero-net-plastic day. I haven't tried since Cue The Trombone of Failure. Awww, today would have been a candidate except for that bag of chips at lunch. Waaah waaah waaah waaah.

Banning plastic bags is a start and after watching this it isn't too much to ask!
