Last Journey For The Leatherback?

Streaming Video - 2013
Rate this:
Only a few hatchlings in a leatherback turtle brood are destined to make it to adulthood-and although a mature specimen's large size and oily flesh tend to ward off most predators, the majestic marine reptile still faces a wide range of human dangers. Chemical and solid waste pollutants create serious hazards, but the greatest harm comes when leatherbacks are snared as bycatch-a frequent occurrence due to the ineffectiveness of many excluder devices. This program provides an introduction to the world of the leatherback turtle and outlines the threat that industrial fishing poses to the species' survival.
