Local NGO spreads awareness on urban wildlife conservation
For 17 years, this Chennai fisherman has rescued hundreds of turtles from trawlers
Pugalarasan works with a not-for-profit called Tree Foundation India (TFI) which works towards sea turtle conservation, human rehabilitation, community development and environmental education among the masses.
Turtles getting trawled and caught in fishing nets is a big problem according to Pugalarasan.
Pugalarasan started rescuing turtles at the age of 20 with Tree Foundation of India (TFI) and decided to go to villages to spread awareness about wildlife conservation.
