Wellfleet, MA – Mass Audubon Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary and WHAT present the documentary “Saving Sea Turtles: Preventing Extinction” Sunday, August 13 at Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater, 2357 Route 6, Wellfleet. The film documents the critical role Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary plays in rescuing cold-stunned turtles.
Narrated by renowned scientist Dr. Sylvia Earle, this feature-length independent documentary tells the larger natural history story of the world’s rarest sea turtle, the Kemp’s Ridley. From the beaches of Massachusetts to Mexico, Texas and Georgia, this film highlights the collaborative work that is being done to save a species from going extinct.
Late each autumn, hundreds of sea turtles strand on Cape Cod due to hypothermia. For more than 25 years, the New England Aquarium and the Mass Audubon Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary have worked together to rescue, rehabilitate and release thousands of these sea turtles.
Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater and Mass Audubon Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary are frequent collaborators, offering programming of interest to their shared communities.
