A profile of writer-conservationist Richard Ogust, who shared his Manhattan loft with 1200 turtles, including several on the endangered list. When he was evicted from the loft, he tried to set up a sanctuary for them. But he ultimately had to move them to a warehouse.
Actually a story of obsession. How many people would spend $100,000 a year keeping a turtle collection. Richard almost lost his mind as well as his money.
Also a little long at 90 minutes but I'm not sure where to cut.
Best quote - by another turtle collector: "Do we want to save them in captivity forever let them go extinct? Extinction is part of life but because we have the ability to care and manipulate we can try to save them. "
