AUSTRALIA – One green turtle went for a wild ride through the Great Barrier Reef with a GoPro.

The video was created by the WWF Australia to raise awareness about saving and protecting the reef.

“As part of that project, the opportunity arose to very carefully fit a small GoPro camera to a turtle, to better understand the post-release behavior of tagged green turtles. The result is this amazing video,” WWF Australia wrote on its YouTube page.

Almost 6,000 species live within the Great Barrier Reef.
