No burn­ing of tur­tles

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

Also Fri­day, the Coast Guard and BP reached a set­tle­ment with en­vi­ron­men­tal groups over the is­sue of how best to guard against ac­ci­den­tally killing en­dan­gered sea tur­tles dur­ing con­trolled burns in the Gulf aimed at curb­ing the spill’s spread.

Al­though ac­tivists haven’t found charred re­mains of en­dan­gered sea tur­tles in the re­gion, they ar­gued that the an­i­mals are at risk.

Un­der the set­tle­ment, the two sides have agreed that the Coast Guard will soon con­vene a group of sci­en­tists to de­ter­mine how best to en­sure that no en­dan­gered sea tur­tles die dur­ing con­trolled burns.
