Brazilian model, activist, and businesswoman Gisele Bündchen is sending out a great reminder of the impact we can have, both good and bad, on the animals we share our planet with.
While taking a walk on the beach, her dog, Onyx, began barking like crazy at what seemed to be just a pile of ocean trash that had found its way onto the shore. But upon closer inspection, Bündchen discovered that an exhausted sea turtle was entangled in a fishing net. Even after she managed to free the poor thing, it was still far too tired to make its way back to the ocean.
Without thinking, Bündchen picked the turtle up, something she would later attribute being able to do because of an adrenaline rush. She placed the resilient turtle in shallow water, waiting and hoping for it to be able to make its way further in the ocean. Thankfully, she didn’t have to wait long!
Watch the turtle rescue below and don’t forget to share.
