TURTLE: THE INCREDIBLE JOURNEY
MOONLIGHT MOVIES will kick off it’s post-fest season with TURTLE: THE INCREDIBLE JOURNEY. The film tells the story of A little loggerhead turtle follows in the path of her ancestors on one of the most extraordinary journeys in the natural world. Born on a beach in Florida, she rides the Gulf Stream all the way to the frozen north and ultimately swims around the entire North Atlantic to Africa and back to the beach where she was born.
The film will be preceded by a discussion with a Mote Marine Laboratory scientist, and a short documentary about loggerhead turtles produced by Mote Marine Laboratory and WEDU.
