Man Rescues Young Sea Turtle Trapped In The Rocks

December 26, 2019

Last week, the MOC Marine Institute received a call about a sea turtle stuck in the rocks along the shoreline of Kalama Park in Maui.

The rocks are covered in algae making them a popular feeding spot for sea turtles, but the smaller turtles can easily get caught in between the rocks as waves crash onto them.

"Fortunately, a passerby noticed the turtle's flipper and contacted our team," the MOC Marine Institute said.

You'll also notice another sea turtle never left the youngster's side!
