Canada is known across the world for its wildlife; bears, wolves, beavers and moose. But, one creature has been around several million years, and many don't even know it's here. Leatherback turtles can travel distances of up to 6 000 kilometers, between their breeding and feeding areas, which brings them right here to the Saint-Lawrence Gulf.
Researchers have been working hard to better understand this jurassic reptile. To learn more, we reached sea turtle biologist for Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Mike James. He joined us on the line from Halifax.

Yvon Côté is a biologist and member of the Federation.
