Last Journey for the Leatherback? Trailer, SeaTurtles.org

2,728 views 9 months ago
The Last Journey for the Leatherback? documents the incredible life of the leatherbacks -- the largest species of sea turtle -- which can dive as deep as the whales and migrate across entire ocean basins. Much of the story is told through interviews with leading marine scientists, including Dr. Sylvia Earle, explorer-in-residence at the National Geographic Society and named Time magazine's first "hero for the planet."

Scientists predict that the giant Pacific leatherback sea turtle, which has survived unchanged for over 100 million years, could vanish in the next 5 to 30 years, if current threats from wasteful industrial fishing are not curtailed. The leatherback is the largest sea turtle, measuring nine feet from head to tail with the largest ever recorded tipping the scales at 2,000 lbs.
