Synopsis by Steve Blackburn
Sea Turtles: Ancient Nomads features beautiful underwater photography, with footage of sea turtles gliding through the ocean, flapping gracefully as if flying. Narrated by actress Jane Alexander, this Audubon Society documentary shows how this ancient species, which can live to be 100 years old, hatches its newborns by the thousands on sandy beaches. The baby turtles clamber into the sea and embark on a perilous journey across thousands of miles to reach their home waters. This documentary examines the mystery of how years later the turtles remember the beach where they were born, returning there to spawn another generation.
