An endangered Kemp's Ridley sea turtle, rescued after being found doused with oil from the Gulf oil spill, is treated on June 10 at the Audubon Nature Institute's Center for Research of Endangered Species in New Orleans, La. Since the start of the crisis, the center has received 32 endangered oiled sea turtles.
