These men buy sea turtles to get them back to the sea

Two beautiful sea turtles could have become somebody's dinner, but they were saved. Arron Calling and his colleague Mark buy these reptiles on the markets of Papua New Guinea and return them to the mother nature.

"We found these turtles on the local market," wrote Calling on Facebook. "We bought them for $50 and then went 5 km off the coast and set them free." These are not the first sea turtles that Arron and Mark save - they bought and set free at least 10 reptiles.

There are 7 species of sea turtles in the world. Almost all of them are in danger of extinction, but in many countries it's still not prohibited to capture them.
