The package at the Calgary airport was ... moving. Inside were 11 baby turtles who never should have crossed the border. Who never should have left their New Jersey marsh. But they were victims of a global smuggling ring which deals in a very specific kind of turtle. This is the story of how those turtles got to the airport, and who sent them there.

GUEST: Dr. Clare Fieseler, journalist and Fellow at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. (Read Clare's investigation in The Walrus.)
