A simple object to protect turtles from boat propellers

If you are wondering why it is so difficult to bring turtles back to Reunion, the answer is simple: the risk of being killed by a boat on the way is great. To understand the extent of the phenomenon, just go to a search engine and type the 3 key words: turtle + propeller + Reunion.

Faced with this ecological drama, the Aquarium of Reunion has decided to react. The company has equipped its boat with propeller protection. This plastic shell helps prevent accidents by preventing marine animals from coming into contact with the motor propellers.

An object as simple as it is effective, allowing it to have a minimum impact on aquatic fauna. It only remains to generalize its use.
