The Great Turtle Race

Living on Earth: The Great Turtle Race

The leatherback turtle is quickly approaching extinction. Now, scientists, conservationists and big business have come together to support the first Great Turtle Race to raise money and awareness about the plight of the leatherback. Host Steve Curwood talks with George Shillinger, a PhD candidate at Stanford University who came up with the idea for the race, and Johnny Glidden, a nine year old leatherback turtle enthusiast.

Another bit from LOE. The dire situation these turtles are in is offset a little by the cheery voice of Johnny Gilden, a bright and cheery nine year old turtle enthusiast.
