and Marine Conservation Photographer of the Year 2019Caretta caretta turtle by Eduardo Acevedo (Spain) in Los Gigantes, South Tenerife, Canary Island, Spain Caretta caretta turtles spend much of their life in the open ocean. They come to the Canary Islands after crossing the Atlantic from the Caribbean beaches. The journey may take years, and they have to avoid dangerous traps such as plastics, rope and fishing nets. This turtle was entangled in a net … but was very lucky to chance upon the help of two underwater photographers to free her.
