Diver Captures Heartbreaking Video of Sea Turtles Killed by Marine Waste

Brett Vercoe captured heartbreaking footage of two dead sea turtles entangled in loops of discarded rope while diving in Moreton Bay, Queensland, on November 11.

Vercoe told Storyful the animals, which he identified as green sea turtles, appeared to have been dead for about a week. He reported the sighting to the Queensland National Parks and Wildlife Service, who are investigating the incident. Credit: Brett Vercoe via Storyful
