The Last Living Pair of Rafetus Turtles

Clip: Season 27 Episode 11 | 7m 10s

In China, the last female rafetus turtle is about to be introduced to her new home at the Suzhou Zoo. She will take up residence in a divided breeding pond where – on the other side of a metal gate – the last male rafetus turtle is waiting to meet her. The stakes are incredibly high: this is literally the last chance the scientists have to save this species.
