Details:“Saving Sea Turtles: Preventing Extinction,” a new documentary chronicles record sea turtle rescue effort”.

Late each autumn, hundreds of sea turtles strand on Cape Cod due to hypothermia. For more than 25 years, the New England Aquarium and the Mass Audubon Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary have worked together to rescue, rehabilitate, and release thousands of these turtles, mostly Kemp ridleys. Over the last decade, the number of stranded turtles has steadily increased, but the late autumn of 2014 saw an unprecedented event as more than 1,200 cold-stunned sea turtles washed ashore. This massive wildlife emergency marshaled an inspiring response that reached from individuals to the federal government.

Filmmakers Michele Gomes & Jennifer Ting will discuss their film followed by a panel discussion with Dr. Charles Innis, Director of Animal Health, New England Aquarium; Constance Merigo, Marine Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation Manager, New England Aquarium; and Bob Prescott, Sanctuary Director of Mass Audubon’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary and NOAA’s MA (Quincy south) Sea Turtle Stranding Coordinator.

THANKS: The Aquarium’s series of free lectures, films, and discussions is made possible by the generous support of the Lowell Institute.
