BP "oil containment practices" threatening extremely endangered wildlife populations.

Ellis said he had to cut short his three-week trip rescuing the turtles because BP quit allowing him access to rescue turtles before the burns.
Ellis said most of the turtles he saw were Kemps Ridley turtles, a critically endangered species. Harming or killing one would bring stiff civil and criminal penalties and fines of up to $50,000 against BP.$50,000? Chump change for BP at this point.
I will NEVER buy gas from a BP station ever again. EVER.
