Turtle Rescued From Fishing Nets

This morning a team from the Corpo de Vigilantes da Natureza found and rescued a turtle (Caretta caretta), caught in a fishing net at the entrance of the Quinta do Lorde marina in Caniçal.

Once freed, the turtle was taken to the Marine Biology Station in Funchal for observation, where it will remain until it is released back into the wild.
