Our oceans are full of trillions of plastic pieces that can stick around for ages, breaking down into microplastics. These tiny bits get eaten by wildlife and can eventually end up in our food chain.

Because of this, some organisations go the extra mile by regularly conducting cleanups to help stop the problem from getting worse. Take @4ocean, for instance, where they were recently seen doing a cleanup off the coast of Pabuwahan Beach in Bali.

They found a trapped sea turtle

In the video, plastic and other random trash can be seen floating in the sea. During the cleanup, @4ocean‘s crew stumbled upon an abandoned mattress that looked a bit unusual.

Upon inspecting the mattress, they were shocked to find a fully grown olive ridley sea turtle trapped inside and struggling to survive.

“The turtle was nearly suffocating, so the cleanup team quickly jumped into action, rescuing it from the mattress and gently removing the plastic tangled around its head.”

The turtle suffered from numb flippers and half-closed eyes

Nur Wahyudi, one of the crew members, quickly took action upon realising the sea turtle was too exhausted to survive on its own, suffocated by plastic and barely able to move.

The turtle showed signs of numb flippers and half-closed eyes, prompting the crew to allow it to rest on the boat for about half an hour to let it regain it’s strength. After clearing away all the plastic and trash, they released it back into the water.

The olive ridley sea turtle got the humorous name Alexa, inspired by @4ocean‘s founder @alexjschulze.

During a recent cleanup off the coast of Pabuwahan Beach, Bali, we found a fully grown olive ridley sea turtle trapped inside a mattress and struggling to survive. The turtle was almost on the verge of suffocation so our cleanup team immediately jumped into action, fetched it out of the mattress, and carefully removed the plastic entangled around its head. The turtle seemed too exhausted to survive on its own, with numb flippers and half-closed eyes. The crew helped it recover by letting it rest in the boat for half an hour. Thanks to the quick action of Nur Wahyudi (the crew member who saw the turtle) we were able to rescue, rehabilitate, and release it back into a cleaner environment. The olive ridley sea turtle was humorously named Alexa, after 4ocean founder @alexjschulze. Six turtle species are endangered, facing severe threats from plastic pollution and poaching daily. The threat of entanglement to turtles is underestimated, as they often suffer internal injuries and starvation from ingesting plastics. It is more important than ever to help support us in solving the ocean plastic crisis. #4ocean #SaveTheTurtles #SeaTurtleRescue
