See the Great Barrier Reef from the perspective of a swimming turtle

I’m not saying I’d trade places with this turtle but imagine how wonderful a life this little guy has. He enjoys things slowly, his body is protected by his home which is always attached to his body and he can just dip into the Great Barrier Reef and swim in the ocean whenever he wants to. That sounds like a life worth trading for.

The footage was taken by a tagged green turtle (with a GoPro) that had just been released back into the wild by the WWF. It’s cool to see its first taste of freedom again.
