Having been on the planet for over a hundred million years, outliving the dinosaurs, nearly all of the seven sea turtle species are now on the brink of extinction due to human causes. The world’s smallest and most critically endangered sea turtle, the Kemp’s Ridley, may still face extinction in the next 50 years. This is the true story of courageous and compassionate people from New England to Mexico who are determined to save this ancient species.

Every year, during the bitter cold of November and December, sea turtles are stranding on the bayside beaches of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, a majority of them the Kemp’s Ridley. In 2014, a record-breaking season erupted with over a thousand sea turtles washing up cold-stunned and virtually lifeless. In a race against time, these sea turtles need to be rescued quickly or they will die.

Admission is $12 per ticket and $2 of that will be donated to the Sea Turtle Conservancy!
