Turtle Odyssey

Laser IMAX® 3D | NR | 45 min. | Documentary

January 1, 2020 - December 31, 2020

Turtle Odyssey explores the unique life cycle of an Australian green sea turtle named Bunji and her journey across the open ocean.

Follow Bunji the green sea turtle from a hatchling into adulthood as she swims thousands of miles, meets incredible creatures and has some really wild encounters. She will eventually migrate back to the very beach where she was born--to lay her own eggs that are the foundation of the next generation. Researchers trek though these same aquatic wonderlands, encountering the majestic corals of the Great Barrier Reef and breathtaking breaching whales. 

Turtle Odyssey reminds us just how interconnected we all are with the ocean.
