A Night of Watching & A Day Of Hope

If you haven’t already, you should check out the blog of the National Wildlife Federation’s John Hammond, one of our front-line responders to the Gulf oil disaster. Here’s an excerpt from a recent post on a night watching for sea turtles:

I watched in silence as she slowly made her way to where the grass on the dunes begin.
