This is a short wildlife documentary about the fascinating Turing patterns in nature and how they may help endangered species around the world.
The first half of the film introduces three characters, which will take us on a quest to explain who Alan Turing was and what is his connection with patterns in nature.
The second part of the film is showing how these patterns can help with conservation, by focussing on the whale shark patterns.
The viewers will feel like going on a fascinating journey, from the secret world of mathematical ecology to incredible underwater scenes.
