It’s amazing the things you can buy at foreign food markets. In Papua New Guinea, for instance, a man recently went to the market and found them selling giant sea turtles for a feast. They were still alive and crawling around!
Arron Culling decided to take action. He bought the two turtles, and instead of eating them that night, he did something amazing with them.
These are the turtles that were on sale at the food market.
He paid $50 for them, “drove 5km up the road and let them go,” according to his Facebook post.
This isn’t even the first time Culling has saved turtles! According to his Facebook, he’s already rescued about ten turtles.
There are only a few species of sea turtles and most of them are endangered.

What Culling is doing is so important if we want to keep these amazing creatures around. If a species is endangered, we should try to protect them as much as possible and get their numbers back up.
