Take a peek at some of the photos taken by the creators of Trek of the Titans, on location with migrating leatherback turtles in their nesting grounds in the Caribbean. The documentary follows Dr. Mike James and members of The Canadian Sea Turtle Network as they strive to better understand, protect, and increase the population of these critically endangered gentle giants of the sea.
The production crew was in Trinidad with researchers and conservationists to document the annual nesting of thousands of leatherbacks on the island. This is the single largest nesting area in the Caribbean and is designated as a marine sanctuary with thegoal of boosting the Atlantic leatherback population.
Tune in to The Nature of Things in Winter 2014 to get a new perspective into the world of the leatherback turtle and learn about the groundbreaking research being done in Atlantic Canada.
