The Leatherback Sea Turtle (Dermochelys coriacea) is an endangered species. These are the largest of all of the sea turtles growing up to 7ft in length and weighing up to 2,000lbs.

In the summer of 2016 while fishing with his son off the coast of Stuart, FL Smith witnessed a group of leatherback hatchlings making their maiden voyage into the ocean. Having witnessed this extraordinary moment he quickly found inspiration to sculpt this hatchling for others to enjoy.
