Animated video about the miraculous sea turtle

The Survival of the Sea Turtle

(CBS News) "Sea turtles are miraculous," this video begins. And after watching it, I'm sold. Sea turtles are truly amazing creatures. Every single turtle overcame incredible odds to make it from an egg on the beach to the decades-old animals they become. But you don't need me to tell you that. Rather, watch this TED Education video, featuring charming animation, called "The Survival of the Sea Turtle."

One-percent of sea turtle eggs make it to adulthood! That's crazy. Almost as crazy as the fact that sea turtles have been around, essentially unchanged, since the age of dinosaurs. It's safe to say that we are definitely sea turtle fans here at The Feed. Hopefully you are, too. If so, be sure to thank Scott Gass and animators Johan Sonestedt and Veronica Wallenberg for this charming and educational video.
