Nature Tracks - Turtle Tracks
This, is the first of the programs on the environment to commemorate world environment day. It is headed up by a “Did you know” segment, which comprises of dynamic attention grabbing and sometimes even humorous environmental information geared to entertain and educate. The remainder of the program is made up of a documentary section. This program focuses on the loggerhead and leatherback turtles of Maputoland. These huge ocean-living, air breathing reptiles beach themselves annually on the Maputoland Coast to lay their eggs. Genetically, the turtles are almost identical to those living 100 million years ago, hence their prehistoric appearance.
