That’s where I began to wonder… (actually after that 12hrs round trip of the rehabilitation guy), how much effort is justified for a single creature?

I love that they’re taking care and making sure it survives, but is it an endangered species? They wouldn’t do that for every other animal, right? Like a malnourished seagull for example.

It's not a bespoke trip set up for this single turtle. The Irish Navy will have ships out on exercises, aid missions and other deployments as part of their regular draft.

In this case, they'd just be taking an extra passenger along to somewhere they're likely already going to be in proximity of.
