Behold the turtle
Tiny Tunes From The Wilder World
Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.
― James Bryant Conant
After 80 days under the sand, newly hatched young turtles dig with all their might to reach the sand surface, on the beach.
From the early moments out of the earthly nest, it’s all about combining perceptions of many signals to navigate: light, reflection of the stars, sounds of the waves, floor angles.
Above all, trust the magnetite, a metal compound embedded in their brain that allows them to navigate by feeling the earth magnetic field.
As a matter of life & death, reaching the ocean requires daunting efforts. Every step matters. No matter how fast, one foot in front of the other…
Call of the sea & staying on track, bravery in scales for a specified period.
On this stage, everything is possible.
Tiny Tunes From The Wilder World, Tiny Tunes From The Wilder World, a series to take step by step to get off on the right foot.
