Documentary featuring the Marine Turtle Research Program at SWFSC wins 2007 Ocean Conservation Award

“The Jurassic Journey,” a film which documents NOAA Fisheries Service’s Southwest Fisheries Science Center (SWFSC-PRD) researchers in action as they capture and tag the giant leatherback sea turtle in the cold waters off California and track its migrations, was awarded the Ocean Conservation Award at the 2007 Santa Barbara Ocean Film Festival last week.
