This is just the sweetest thing. Actually made me tear up a little…so happy for this turtle…. feel awful for the ones that don’t get saved..love that this one ended good and happy!!
Here is what she posted about it…
Life is a series of opportunities that appear daily, and we choose what to do with them. Today was no different.
Early this morning I was walking on the beach and Onyx started barking at a pile of ocean trash that had washed during high tide. When I came closer I saw this beautiful turtle turned upside down with a look of hopelessness and exhaustion in her eyes, her body knotted and entangled in a fishing net.
I immediately started to free her from the net that was strangling her, but even after we got her untied, she was too tired to make her way back to the ocean. I didn’t think twice, I just picked her up and carry her to the water.(amazing how adrenaline can make you stronger!) I felt relieved and so happy to see her swim away freely, grateful that I was there and able to help.
But there are so many other animals that unfortunately end up dying on nets like this. Today I was reminded that we must become more aware of our ways as a species and help protect all animals, it’s our choice.
I pray that we can all rise and remember that the opportunity to change begins with a single act 🙏
