The Guardian newspaper has posted photos of marine life swimming through the oil spill in the Timor Sea in the north of Australia -- saturating one of the world's last ocean wilderness areas. See photos at:
Dolphins, migratory sea birds, sea snakes and turtles have been found swimming in one of the worst oil spills in Australia's history. As engineers launched a fourth attempt to staunch the 64-day old leak today, a large environmental group released a report warning that the slick, which is about 550km north of Darwin, is killing hundreds and possibly thousands of marine animals.
Satellite images show a 25,000 square kilometre slick spreading across the surface of the ocean and spilling into Indonesian waters, threatening the marine reserves of Ashmore and Cartier reefs.

Oh my gosh! I LOVE turtles! They are my favorite animals ever! I think it is soooo nice/great what you guys are trying to do for them! When I grow up, I want to be just like you guys. It would be sooo fun to work with sea turtles and to help the enviroment at the same time! It makes me feel great! I love turtles more than anything and I will do almost anything to help save the species and create a peaceful/better world for the turtles! That is my main goal for my life, to be just like you and to help my favorite animals ever, the sea turtles!
