Man buys sea turtles and releases them

Here is a story that is sure to put a smile on your face…

Arron Culling and his coworker Mark Machen, kiwi miners working in Papau New Guinea, have gone semi viral for possibly the sweetest thing two burly men have ever done.

They saw live sea turtles for sale at a food market and purchased them for less than $50 USD. They did not like the idea of the turtles being made into soup so they drove the turtles 5km down the road and released them back into the sea. What makes the story even better, they have done this more than 10 other times!

In many countries, sea turtle fishing is still legal despite the decline in populations all over the world. The world needs more people like these guys.
