Saving Species, Series 2 Episode 11 of 30

11/30 The Green Turtle is one of nature's great travellers, migrating from feeding grounds to breeding grounds traversing the oceans of the world. Like so many species reported in the series, Green Turtles are in decline. Our reporter James Brickell reports from the Great Barrier Reef with biologists who are both trying to understand the natural history of these magnificent creatures and help in their conservation. And we have turtle biologist Brendan Godley from Exeter University live in the studio.

We'll have an update from the two Beavers we're following in Devon - Chris Sperring has been down to visit the site and to see the Beavers.

And how is Chris the Cuckoo doing? We'll be spying in on his migration south.
