People were kayaking in the ocean when a turtle in distress swam towards them asking for help

The turtle even got a gentle kiss on the head by the kind rescuers.


As much as humans destroy the Earth and harm the animals living both on land and in the water, there are still people out there who fight for the rights of those who can’t speak for themselves.

The fact that the seas and oceans are full of debris and plastic is sad all by itself. Turtles, fish, whales, and a huge number of creatures die because they eat the plastic and all the garbage that ends in their homes.

A group of people were kayaking off the coast of Gran Canaria, Spain, when they spotted a creature swimming towards them. At first, they couldn’t say what it was, but soon, they realized it was a turtle in distress and in need of help. The poor soul was trapped in a fishing net which was tied around its neck and one of its front legs.

One of the people rushed to take the turtle in his arms. After a couple of minutes, the sweet animal was free and the people who saved it were glad they could help.

Before returning it back into the water, its rescuer gave the turtle a gentle kiss on the head.

The video of the sweet rescue has been seen by nearly 2 million people who praise the kind humans for helping the turtle. “Lovely to see. Love the kiss on the head and the gentle care he takes. Beautiful. Thank you kind stranger!” one person wrote.
