Diving Club Paradise House Reef (Palawan, Philippines)

The video contains footage of divers hand-feeding and touching a protected sea turtle, which the commentator acknowledges as a discouraged activity (and may be subject to severe penalties in some locations).  The divers in the video clearly demonstrate no malice or reckless behavior that can be construed as turtle harassment.  The human-turtle interaction borders on magical.  Nonetheless, it’s best to leave sea turtles alone no matter how cute they are … and this particular sea turtle is pretty damn cute.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
