Ghost Nets – The Silent Killers of Our Oceans
Ghost nets are fishing nets that have been lost, abandoned, or discarded at sea.
Every year they are responsible for killing millions of marine animals.
Marine Turtle Rescue Centre Maldives
Marine turtles caught in ghost gear frequently suffer devastating injuries as a result. The ORP Marine Turtle Rescue Centre provides veterinarian care and rehabilitation to injured marine turtles rescued across the Maldives. With injuries too severe for immediate release, many of the turtles would almost certainly not survive without treatment.
