Crush survives net entanglement

Crush-a turtle

This turtle named ‘crush’ was rescued from a fisherman net at Funzi Bay, in Funzi Island south of the Kenyan coast. The green turtle (Chelonia mydas) locally known as Kawa wa Kawaida was later tagged and released into the sea by a members of a local turtle community conservation group, Funzi Turtle Club. Conservation efforts by the club members have seen quite a number of sea turtles rescued from fishermen nets over the years.
