Stop BP from burning turtles alive in the oil spill

This petition had 914 supporters


BP is killing endangered sea turtles in its careless oil clean-up operations. Stop BP from burning turtles alive in the oil spill.

Wildlife rescuers and fishermen have reported that turtles and other wildlife are being burned alive in the Gulf oil spill. According to the New York Times, "so-called burn boxes are torching oil from the water's surface at the sacrifice of turtles, crabs, sea slugs and other sea life."

BP must be held accountable for killing endangered species and destroying their habitats. Send a letter to NOAA Administrator Jane Lubchenco asking her to ensure that all wildlife is saved from the oil spill.
