Point Calimere- Turtle

We saw a sea Turtle during our boat ride on the Palk Strait- the strip of Bay of Bengal between Sri Lanka (Jaffna) and India (Tamilnadu) caught in a fishing net! Just THINK!! How we are killing these poor guys!! Poor Chaps!! See its face! How cute and how helpless!! Lucky for him that we were there... Otherwise the locals would have eaten it!! The boatman wanted to take it.. but we said NOOOOOOOOOOO  and he took our boat around to the point and cut the nets to release the guy! Hope he never gets caught again!! Cheers!! We are actually killing our planet!!

For Now the Name I got for this one is
Green turtle -- scientific name Chelonia mydas
Once the guy is checked from close up I will correct this name if required.

Here are my other photos of Birds at this place.
