¡Viva la Tortuga! (PaceUniversityMCVA)

In the epic and eternal battle between sea turtles and fishermen, can both survive? The answer can be yes, according to the new documentary, "¡Viva la Tortuga!" Produced by students from Pace University, the 16-minute film takes a close look at the coalition Grupo Tortuguero, which has been working to protect endangered sea turtles in Mexico's Magdalena Bay on the Baja Peninsula by developing new, sustainable ways to support the region's economy.

"¡Viva la Tortuga!" is the third documentary created over the past few years by students in the documentary production class taught by professors Maria Luskay and Andrew Revkin. "All of these films involve figuring out ways to manage resources in a sustainable way while also building economies," says Revkin, who also writes the Dot Earth blog at The New York Times. The subjects for each film have all been in developing countries or poor regions. "It exposes a lot of these students to issues that they just would normally never experience."
