Exploratorium Science at America's Cup
Green Sea Turtles (Clip)
Date: November 25, 2011
Running Time: 04:55

There are green sea turtles in San Diego Bay? Where did they come from? Do they really live over 100 years? Why is it important for scientists to keep track of these giant creatures, and how on earth do they do it? In this interview with ecologist Tomoharu Eguchi (NOAA Marine Fisheries Service) and ecology graduate student Sheila Madrak, we meet the sea turtles and explore these 'big' questions.
Join Exploratorium science educators as they investigate the world of oceans and sailing! We will be posting a short series of pieces from the America's Cup trials in San Diego, California this November, 2011.
