Andre Landry, a sea turtle expert at Texas A&M University in Galveston, said baby turtles swim out and attach themselves to algae mats or other floating habitats. It's possible those habitats are oiled, he said. In Florida, because of the proximity to the oil, loggerhead turtle nests are being collected and incubated. Hatchlings are being released on the state's eastern coast, far from the oil. "That goes in direct opposition to what's been decided with the Kemp's ridleys," Landry said. The Kemp's ridleys have been on the endangered list since 1973 after their population was depleted from years of hunting their eggs and trapping the animals in fishing nets.

In 2008 when a $71,000 state grant for the patrols was cut, Dr. Landry personally raised funding with help from Houston trial lawyer Joe Jamail.Jr.
