Brav­ing the Gulf

Austin American-Statesman - - METRO & STATE -

A few Kemp’s ri­d­ley tur­tles at Padre Is­land Na­tional Seashore shimmy their way to­ward the Gulf of Mex­ico on Mon­day. Fed­eral bi­ol­o­gists are re­leas­ing thou­sands of the sea tur­tle hatch­lings off the Texas coast, hop­ing that the Gulf will be clear of the BP oil spill by the time the baby tur­tles get far­ther east. Crit­ics say the move puts the an­i­mals at risk.
