The seemingly endless oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico is killing countless sea animals and sea birds, large and small. But there is no story as tragic as the plight of the sea turtles

Thanks you for this very detailed description of the extent of the catastrophe for turtles.
"But this oil spill is killing them in potentially catastrophic numbers."
And the oil continues to spew, and the government is again granting permits for more off shore drilling, and politicians continue to own shares in the oil industry and have dinner with the oil lobbyists, and everything will continue as usual. At times it is hard to not give up on the human race, as we are slowly destroying wildlife, the environment, and lastly ourselves. Heaven forgive us.

Great effort made by all. Milton is correct about the timing, imagine if this was happening to you and your family, everything covered in oil and toxins and no matter which way you turned you found more of the same.

Support clean energy, take a moment and send an email, a card, a letter to your representatives asking, begging, demanding we move quickly and drastically away from this industry. One email from you helps. One hand written letter or card makes all of the difference to them, it's tangible, it's in their hands (or their intern's hands) and it translates to the voices of 500 voters.

I take this opportunity to once again promote the Avaaz petition
To President Obama and members of Congress:
"We urge you to permanently call off plans to open up more of the US coastline to dangerous offshore drilling. Instead, invest in a CLEAN and SAFE ENERGY future"
489,229 have signed the petition! Let's get to our delivery target of 500,000!
Thank You! Muchas Gracias! Danke Schön! Merci! Muito Obrigado! Arigato! Kiitos! Tack!

Thank you for that very informative story. In Native American symbolism turtles are mother earth. Both the turtles and gaia need our help and prayers.
