The Green Sea Turtle rescued by Sea Shepherd's Apex Harmony Crew on Monday has sadly passed away whilst in care at the rescue centre.
A Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service ranger carefully transported the turtle to the Rescue Centre at SeaWorld. Everyone involved did their very best for this turtle which was named “Budgial” by her carers.
The lessons from this is that many animals occupy the surface levels of the ocean including turtles, dugongs, rays, dolphins and whales. Boat drivers must exercise great care when traversing their areas. This includes driving at appropriate speeds and maintaining an effective lookout.
