NOAA Divers Free Green Sea Turtle from Net in Hawaii
In October 2014, a team of 17 NOAA divers sailing aboard NOAA Ship Oscar Elton Sette returned from a mission to remove marine debris from Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument in Hawaii, a World Heritage Site and one of the largest marine conservation areas in the world. Divers encountered and rescued three sea turtles tangled in different nets. Note: NOAA removes 57 tons of marine debris from Northwestern Hawaiian Islands.
