Turtle: The Incredible Journey

Born on a beach in Florida, she rides the Gulf Stream up towards the Arctic and swims around the entire North Atlantic across to Africa and back to the beach where she was born. But the odds are stacked against her; just one in 10,000 turtles survive the journey. She faces many hazards, the doldrums of the Sargasso Sea, creatures of the deep and fishermen. She travels up north but she drifts from her life current, the Gulf Stream, into dangerously cold waters. When she finally reaches the Azores on the other side of the Atlantic, her calling comes; she must return to her beach. When she reaches the shores of Florida, 25 years will have passed! She crawls out of the sea to lay her own eggs and keeps the Turtle's Journey alive.
