Journey of the Loggerhead: Interactive DVD on Marine Turtles    
Available September 2004

Environmental Media has produced media to support the work of environmental and education organizations for more than fifteen years, yet until we began working on Journey of the Loggerhead, we had not come in contact with so many people with such passion for one goal: the worldwide conservation of marine turtles. We designed and filmed this interactive DVD in the company of countless staff and volunteers of local nesting beach monitoring programs, domestic and international agencies, colleges and universities, aquaria, nature centers, and rehabilitation programs. The sum of our work is this interactive DVD containing GIS data, satellite tracking information, still photographs, extensive interviews, and a 26-minute video about the loggerhead and other marine turtle species.

For more information or to order: Contact Katy Garland at kgarland@envmedia.com, or 800-368-3382, ext. 12.
