Tonight: ‘Turtle’ doc screens at City Library
First Published Dec 14 2011 08:19 am • Last Updated Dec 14 2011 08:49 am

The amazing path taken by a loggerhead turtle from birth to parenthood is explored in the documentary "Turtle: The Incredible Journey," screening on Wednesday, Dec. 14, at the City Library auditorium, 210 E. 400 South, Salt Lake City.

The documentary, directed by Nick Stringer, starts with a baby loggerhead hatched on a beach in Florida. It then rides the Gulf Stream to the North Atlantic, to Africa and eventually back to Florida — where, if it is the one in a thousand that survives, it will mate and produce more loggerheads.
