There are seven sea turtle species on Planet Earth. Six are endangered.
Rubber Jellyfish is a documentary about the surprising effects of helium balloons on sea turtles, sea birds and many other species including our own. In this deeply personal story, a mum to be meets key players fighting for and against the rights of the balloon industry, exploring the environmental effects of this most common symbol of childhood.
