Indonesian park attempts to boost sea turtle population

An Indonesian national park near the capital, Jakarta, is hoping to boost the numbers of critically endangered hawksbill turtles in the Java Sea.

The centre at Pramuka Island releases hundreds of turtles in the sea every year and also rehabilitates turtles that have been injured by fishing nets.
