Rescued Leatherback

A friend of mine brought the video below to my attention a couple of days ago. As you know, I've been involved with the Sea Turtle Monitoring program on Pensacola Beach for several years as a volunteer sea turtle patroller, so I was very excited to see the rescue of this huge leatherback which had gotten tangled up in a crab trap and buoy. As you can see in the beginning, it was exhausted and probably would not have lasted much longer had it not been spotted. I hope you are able to access the link:
