On February 4th we were invited to attend the release of two Green Turtles that we had assisted in rescuing from an Illegal IUU Vietnamese Pair Trawler. Late on the evening of the 3rd of February we locating the illegal boats and informed to Kampot Fisheries, their quick actions of apprehending the boats then saved the life of these Two beautiful turtles, the Female weighed in at 110kg and the Male 125kg. They were tagged and released after a much needed rest, a few moments to late and they would already have been dead, both were exhausted and took almost a full day to recover enough to be safely released.
