Dead Sea Turtle04.jpg

Dead sea turtle on the beach in Waveland Mississippi, painted red by the Institute for the Marine Mammal Studies so it wont be counted a second time, left on the beach until a crew comes to remove it.
An unprecedented number of dead young Kemp's Ridley and Loggerhead sea turtles have washed up on the shores of Mississippi along the Gulf of Mexico starting almost a year after the BP oil spill.
Test are being done on the high number of turtle and dolphin corpses found on the beaches but results have not been released.
