Join host Jeff Corwin on an exploration of the tantalizing world of turtles! First, Jeff journeys into the wilderness of southern Florida to save gopher tortoises from a land development project that threatens to bury them alive. Jeff uses a massive earth mover to dig up the tortoises from their deep burrows and then relocates them to protected habitat. Next, Jeff dives with endangered green sea turtles off the Atlantic coast to help scientists monitor their delicate population. Later, Jeff travels to his home state of Massachusetts to save a tiny terrapin that lives in the wetland marsh.
