In the Youtube video, Nathan Robinson, with the help of Christine Figgener, saved the Olive Ridley sea turtle by removing a plastic straw from it's nostril. The Olive Ridley sea turtle are considered endangered because of its few nesting sites all over the world.
The straw was 10-12 cm in length.
The Youtube video has been viewed 1.8 million times and the photos uploaded in various social media platforms have gone viral. They are urging more netizens to share the photos and videos to hopefully stop the dumping of non-biodegradable waste into the seas/oceans.
