Loggerhead sea turtles face an uncertain future.


3 - 12+


Biology, Ecology

Wild Chronicles follows one of nature's most extraordinary odysseys—a loggerhead sea turtle hatchling embarking on a dangerous, ten-year ocean journey. Adrift in the vast waters, the young turtle instinctively escapes danger and slowly grows. The ultimate goal: survival, and a return to the beach of her birth to nest and lay eggs.
