Leatherback Sea Turtle Rescued from Entanglement


A leatherback sea turtle that was entangled in a buoy line in Cape Cod Bay was freed by Massachusetts environmental officials.

Marine Patrol officers were conducting a lobster boat inspection Wednesday morning when they saw the turtle and notified the Center of Coast Studies. The turtle was about two miles off the coast of Plymouth.

A crew from the Center was able to free the turtle from the line.
