Saving Sea Turtles with Mayonnaise…..
MICHMORET, Israel (AP) – Sure, it can be good on a sandwich, or even mixed into potato salad. However, chances are you’ve never thought of mayonnaise as a healing potion. But employees at Israel’s National Sea Turtle Rescue Center have found that when it comes to helping sea turtles, you could call mayonnaise miracle spread.
The discovery was found after an oil spill coated loads of green sea turtles with thick black tar. Worse, the tar lined the reptiles’ innards,
including their airways. So rescue workers aren’t holding the mayo; instead, they’re feeding it to turtles. The mayonnaise cleans out the turtles’ systems, breaking down the tar inside.
Workers say the process is so effective, the turtles can expect to be released back into the wild after a week’s worth of their mayo-based diet.
