Olive Ridley Project video: two turtles rescued 13 Jan 2014

The Olive Ridley Project, which aims to identify the origin of ghost nets found in the waters of India, Maldives and Sri Lanka, rescued two Olive Ridley Sea Turtles on the 6th January 2014.

"After going out by boat, arranged by Matt and Lauren from Tropic Surf, we all set out to look for turtles in distress.. after a short while we came across a ginormous ghost net featured in this video. After jumping in to discover sharks circling underneath we got to work on releasing both turtles and this is the story.... "
