Saving Sea Turtles: Preventing Extinction.” A few weeks ago, the Kemp Ridley turtles started arriving on our bay beaches, washed ashore and stranded by the prevailing westerly wind, cold-stunned by the dropping temperatures. 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 documentary, narrated by renowned scientist Dr. Sylvia Earle, puts our local experience and volunteerism into a global perspective as it follows the Kemp Ridley’s through their annual migration. Join us for the film screening, some discussion and coffee hour beginning at 10:00 a.m. Sunday, November 11.
