Sea Turtle Odyssey

Sea Turtle Odyssey
The loggerhead sea turtle is one of the world's most endangered animals, but little is known about its reproductive behavior. In an effort to save the species, expert Dr. Col Limpus is studying what happens to hatchlings after their birth on Australia's beaches. For ages, the lives of loggerheads were mostly secret - we had no idea how they spent the years between when they hatched and adulthood; no idea how old a female was before she came ashore to breed.
