Aardman Animations (the guys behind Wallace And Gromit) and Greenpeace made this heartbreaking stop motion film about the damage that humans are doing to the habitats of turtles and sea life.
In the video, we follow a charming family of turtles as they prepare to go on a holiday to another part of the sea. On the way, they find that their migration paths have been blocked. As the travel further, they have to wade through rubbish and find their away across a changing landscape.
They manage to get through the mess though and we see them returning from their holiday towards the end of the film. Even though they’ve made it back, their home is brutally demolished as fishing boats plough through their town. It’s a chilling reminder of the damage that we’re doing to our oceans and the human-caused threats that turtles are facing. It’s good to see a much-loved production company like Aardman throw themselves behind an important issue like this one. The work that they’ve done here is amazing, even if the message is a sobering one.
