110 million years ago, during the age of the dinosaurs, leatherback sea turtles traversed the globe. They’ve witnessed the rise and fall of oceans, the creation and recreation of seas, and the movement of continents. These evolutionary marvels survived a mass extinction event and came of age with the world as we know it. Adept seafarers, leatherback sea turtles frequent every marine region except the Arctic and Antarctic. In an epic life cycle spanning decades and covering tens of thousands of miles, males live entirely at sea; but females never fail to return to their natal beaches. The name Ancient Mariner was chosen for the leatherback portrait as it represents both their extraordinary story of endurance, and their remarkable ability to navigate across the world’s ocean and many seas.
