“The Ridley’s Last Stand” is a poignant look at the life and times of the olive ridley. Tens of thousands of these sea turtles visit the coast of Orissa, in India, every year to mate and nest. As a species, they have been around for millions of years, but today these gentle giants of the sea are in conflict with man. During the last six years over 75,000 dead ridleys have been washed ashore on the beaches of Orissa. The film provides rare insights into the natural history and conservation of these mysterious creatures. Will the ridley go the way of the dodo and the passenger pigeon? Or, can we save it with timely action?
