  • Description
  • The Ridley’s Last Sand is a poignant look at the life and times of the olive ridley turtle. Tens of thousands of these sea turtles visit the coast of Orissa, in India, every year, to mate and nest. As a species, they have been around for millions of years, but today these gentle giants of the sea are in conflict with mechanized fishing. The film provides rare insights into the natural history and conservation of these turtles.
