A critically endangered Hawksbill turtle was found in a very poor condition at Manly beach last night. Seabird Rescue Central Coast (that also specialises in turtles) did their best to give advice how to care for the turtle overnight but it sadly passed away. Taronga Zoo performed a necropsy on the turtle and they found the turtles stomach full of plastic and fishing lines. Please always take your rubbish with you, reduce your single-use plastic footprint and dispose fishing lines safely. This turtle would have lived if it wasn't for irresponsible humans.
