From Julie: I had read the mortality rate of the sea turtle and dolphins is still higher then usually but had not seen pictures this year I drove to the beach today to have a look. I didn't find as many dead animals as I had in the past 2 years after the BP oil spill but still more then i would call normal. Is it ever normal to find a dead Kemps Ridley sea turtle? If you haven't checked on my Indiegogo campaign please check it out now--http://igg.me/at/jsdart/x/2934268 and join in if you appreciate my reporting ! Thanks.
