Want to understand what happened in the #gulf? Great visual from @NRDC. Check it out: #oilspill

All six species of sea turtles found in American waters — green, hawksbill, Kemp’s ridley, leatherback, loggerhead, and olive ridley — are either threatened or in danger of extinction. After the disaster, more than 400 sea turtles were rescued from oily waters, but more than 600 carcasses were found. Early estimates suggest that approximately half of these deaths were related to oil. Sea turtles often migrate long distances between foraging grounds and the beaches where they lay their eggs in the sand. The oil spill may have left turtles too ill to mate or lay eggs and contaminated their habitat.
