Oil spill threatens sea turtles

Disaster in Gulf of Mexico is threatening the existence of endangered Kemp's Ridley Turtles.

    Besides seabirds and wetlands' wildlife, the oil slick in the Gulf of Mexico is also threatening the world's most endangered sea turtles.

    The Kemp's Ridley Turtle has been making a comeback in recent years with the help of conservationists.
