Caption: Loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) with a damaged flipper. The flipper was caught on a hook on a tuna-fishing longline, and has become infected. It will be removed and the turtle released. Filmed at Lampedusa Turtle Rescue Centre, on Lampedusa, Italy. This isolated Mediterranean island is an important breeding ground for loggerhead turtles, one of the few remaining places in the Mediterranean on which they lay their eggs.
