A Coast Guard officer pours sea water on a red sea turtle trapped in a fishing net. Meanwhile, the others are trying to remove the net from the animal. This red sea turtle measuring 115 centimeters was found on the coast of Seongsan-eup in the city of Seogwipo. It is an internationally protected species. A green sea turtle measuring 50 centimeters was also caught in the same fishing net. Its neck was completely stuck in the net. The animal's body was scratched all over, but luckily it's in stable condition. The turtles were spotted by a tourist strolling at the beach. They were both rescued unharmed. The turtles will receive medical treatment at a rescue center specializing in marine animals before being released back to the ocean.

[Soundbite] KIM BYUNG-YUP(PROF., JEJU NATIONAL UNIVERSITY) : "Luckily, they survived. We will attach GPS devices to the turtles to find out more about their migration route."

The number of sea turtles that are endangered species worldwide, that either died or were caught in discarded fishing equipment off the coast of Jejudo Island, more than doubled from only seven last year to 15 this year. Seven rescued sea turtles that were caught in fishing nets alive this year will be released back to the ocean after undergoing medical treatment.
