New episode posted: Sea Turtles!

This is one of our favorite episodes from season 2. I went to Malaysia to film mating sea turtles and spent several weeks working on getting the sequence. And WHAT a sequence. It was something I had never seen before. Our finished sea turtle segment follows the entire lifespan of sea turtles from birth to mating to egg laying. We shot females laying eggs using infra-red cameras and babies rushing to the sea after being born. You will enjoy this one.

400 Kids enjoy Blue World at the DC Environmental Film Fest!

Today we showed 4 segments from Season 2 of Jonathan Bird's Blue World to an audience of about 400 kids in Washington DC at the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital. The segments were Stars of the Sea (Sea stars), The Real Nemo (anemonefish), Feeding Frenzy, and Sea Turtles. You always know that the kids are engaged in the subject when 400 kids are silent for 40 minutes with no fidgeting!
