Satish Bhaskar, “Mr. Sea Turtle”, walks nearly 2/3rds of India’s coastline, in search of the elusive creature. His pioneering work involves extraordinary solo adventures, marooned on wild islands. With nothing but Sea Turtles for company, he begins to uncover their mysterious behavior. It is on one such survey of the Andaman islands in 1988 that he sees the giant ancient Leatherback, the first proof of their existence in India. However, he is hit by a painful nerve condition and forced to retire.
