PHUKET: A small turtle trapped in a discarded fishing net was rescued by local residents at Yanui Beach in Rawai earlier today (May 29).

 

Rawai Mayor Aroon Solos explained that local residents had gone to the beach to clear plastic bottles and other marine debris that had washed ashore, and found the small turtle trapped in a large section of discarded fishing net that had also washed up onto the beach.

 

The local residents safely cut the turtle free from the net and placed it in a barrel with some seawater until officers from Rawai Municipality arrived, Mr Aroon explained.
