Born to Explore With Richard Wiese

South Africa: Turtles And Tsongas

Season 1, Episode 20 of 26

The tale of the turtle takes place on the beaches of South Africa's Rocktail Bay, on the edge of the Indian Ocean. Richard Wiese travels here to search for the extraordinary 300-pound loggerhead turtle, which swims thousands of miles each year to lay its eggs on the same beach where it was born. Richard joins a Tsonga tribesman to catch fish in unusual reed traps and visits a rural primary school to see how the next generation of South Africans is coming of age.
