Mundo Marino Foundation release two sea turtles after treatment
Two turtles have been released back into the wild after one contracted a near-deadly infection caused by consuming plastic.
The pair were rescued after they had tangled themselves in a fishing net nearly three months ago in Argentina waters.
They were brought to Mundo Marino Educational Park, an aquarium, where they spent nearly three months in rehab.
Analysis found that one of the turtles was defecating plastic and revealed an abscess blocking its nostrils, which left untreated could have been fatal.
