On behalf of the animals, thank you!

"Cool Stuff" Sea Turtle Video

Cool Stuff:  Sea Turtles of the NESea turtles are cool stuff!  That's what local video producer Gregg Seibert, founder of Purple Turtle Productions, thinks.  And he decided he wanted to share his passion.  With the help of Bridgewater State students who served as his crew, and local schoolchildren who auditioned for roles, Gregg created a video entitled "Cool Stuff:  Sea Turtles of the Northeast."  This fun and educational video discusses the species of sea turtles found in the Northeast U.S., what causes them to strand, how they are rehabilitated, and what kids can do to help.  A companion curriculum is available for educators.

The video is available in the National Marine Life Center's Gift Shop for $19.95 (regular version) or $25.95 (educators' version - must special order) + $5 S&H (if mailed).  To purchase, stop by our Business Office between 9 am and 5 pm Monday through Friday, or contact Adele Raphael,, 508-743-9888 x303.
