BP to Stop Burning Turtles Alive

Well, when I first posted about BP killing endangered turtles in their controlled burns I wasn’t sure anything would come of it. But earlier today, BP and the Coast Guard settled the lawsuit brought against them for harming endangered species. BP has agreed to halt burns for a week, and to clear burn boxes of sea turtles before setting them on fire. To everyone who shared the initial story, give yourself a pat on the back. You saved some turtles!
