Swimmers in Nafplio on Friday rescued a sea turtle that had become entangled in a fishing net. The animal was spotted by a swimmer who brought it to shore and freed it from the netting with the help of other beachgoers before releasing it back into the sea. Turtles often get trapped in discarded nets. [Evangelos Bougiotis/ANA-MPA]
