Operation Kimberley Miinimbi Documentary (28 mins) - At the beginning of August 2012, the M/V Steve Irwin travelled halfway around Australia to descend upon Walmadan (also known as James Price Point) in Western Australia - the site of the world's largest humpback whale nursery.

Defending Turtles in Cabo Verde (12 mins) - Every year, tonnes of discarded fishing gear wash up on the beaches of Cabo Verde, a remote island nation in the central Atlantic Ocean, where thousands of loggerhead sea turtles come to lay their eggs.

Watch this inspiring video about our campaign to protect the turtles of Cabo Verde.
Galapagos (34 mins) - Off the coast of Ecuador, the Galapagos Archipelago is famed throughout the world for its unique plant and animal species.

Produced in 2011, this documentary shows the work that we have been carrying out to assist in the protection of the Galapagos Marine Reserve and the life within it. Watch on Youtube
