Two Years Later: Day 2

From April 20th, 2010 through April 5th, 2011 some 1,149 sea turtles washed up along the gulf coast. Of the dead turtles, an overwhelming majority were Kemp’s ridley sea turtles, the most endangered sea turtle species in the world, which nests only in the Gulf of Mexico.

Last month alone, 40 more dead sea turtles were found on the shores of Mississippi, proving that two years later, the worst effects of the BP oil spill are far from over.
