“The Challenger Learning Center is excited to bring Turtle Odyssey to our IMAX Theatre and to share this story of survival and adventure” says Michelle Personette, Executive Director. “The importance of protecting these amazing creatures and other marine animals is crucial to our environment. Through Bunji’s story, audiences will learn to appreciate the creatures that share our planet and marvel at the magnificent underwater adventures of sea turtles.”

There are only half as many turtles in the ocean than a hundred years ago, and the biggest threat to their survival is not life in the wild, but in sharing their world with humans.
"Turtle Odyssey" is narrated by Russell Crowe. Based in Australia, Crowe maintains a close association with Australia Zoo in the conservation and protection of sea turtles, creating a perfect synergy between the voice and messaging of this landmark film.
