Details on “Turtle: The Incredible Journey” release:
This award-winning, stunning documentary follows the life and migration of a loggerhead turtle from hatching to maturity and a return to its original Florida nesting grounds. The loggerhead turtle, a threatened species, has one of the longest and most difficult migrations of any marine animal.

Bonus material on both the DVD and Blu-ray releases include interviews with director Nick Stringer and narrator Miranda Richardson, and a look behind-the-scenes at SeaWorld’s wildlife rescue program. Turtles are among the dozens of species that benefit from the rescue program, which has aided 20,000 mammals, birds, reptiles and fish since its inception.

Other SeaWorld DVDs set for retail release in 2012 include “Saving a Species,” the Emmy Award-winning series that tells the story of endangered animals and conservation projects. Each title tells the compelling survival story of a different species, from penguins and manatees to gorillas and elephants. The home entertainment line also will feature DVDs of live theatrical productions seen in the SeaWorld parks, giving fans the opportunity to view these popular shows as often as they like.
