At a Glance

Marine biologist and boat captain Dorris Welch spins tall sea turtle tales and shares the marvels of their amazing adaptions for ocean living. Sea turtles have remarkable diving and navigation skills enabling them to travel vast distances across the world’s oceans for feeding and nesting. Most of our tropical and temperate seas are vital habitats for a host of endangered sea turtles who feed and/or nest here. Long exploited by humans and threatened with extinction, new awareness and conservation efforts are key for their survival. Captain Dorris will share engaging underwater video footage from her diving explorations with turtles from the Caribbean to the tropical Pacific and Indian Oceans.
