The Sea Turtle Restoration Project (STRP) hosts the public premier showing of The Heartbreak Turtle Today, an educational documentary detailing Gulf of Mexico sea turtle conservation up to, and including, the horrific BP oil spill. The 30-minute documentary will be followed by an interactive discussion and a presentation on California’s sea turtle conservation work and how you can help. Dr. Chris Pincetich and STRP staff will be present to answer questions.
This special documentary screening, presentation, and discussion is a must-attend event for individuals concerned about the BP oil spill effects, sea turtle conservation, and the health of the world’s oceans. The Heartbreak Turtle Today documentary tells the uplifting story of recovery efforts to bring the Kemp’s ridley sea turtle back from the brink of extinction, and explores the impacts of the horrific BP oil spill. An interactive discussion with Dr. Chris Pincetich, who worked for 5 weeks in the Gulf during the BP spill, will include unique photos, video and insights.
Admission is free. Donations accepted.
