Project Aware day coming up Sept. 25. If you have never been, I promise you two things, first- one of the crappiest dives you ever had. second, you will have fun, meet great people and feel good about the work you did.

Now here is the poll question. I saw a picture of a turtle with a purse handle wrapped around it. If you saw this, what would you do?

I would get the turtle disengaged from the purse, but only deep to the point of not violating my NDL.

Deep, meaning deeper than your dive plan. yes.

I would attempt to free the turtle but I would not put myself in harms way at the same time. If the turtle its not cooperating he/she will remain having a purse around its neck.

My dive plan would change. My plan to free the turtle would be grab the purse and cut the strap. Not grab the turtle and try and unloop it. Cutting would be quick and painless with little fight.

Yes, as others have stated. I would try my best, and take some moderate additional risk, but I would not put its life above mine or my buddies.

I'd go for it too. You needed an A, B, C and an all but E choice as well.
