Man Pays $50 For A Sea Turtle At The Market, Releases It Back Into The Sea


Two sea turtles have been saved from a not-so-great fate in Papua New Guinea after a man and his co-worker bought them from a local food market and released them back into the sea.

Arron Culling and his co-worker Mark were behind the turtle’s rescue mission. They bought the turtles for $50 each, drove 5km up the road and then released them where they belong… into the deep, blue sea!


This isn’t the first time Arron has rescued sea turtles from the market, either. He and Mark have already rescued about 10 in total.


If you can’t rescue your own turtles like Arron, consider supporting the Sea Turtle Conservancy to make a difference.
