For many of them, there was nowhere else to go. Moreover, creatures congregating near the shore risked getting trapped between shore and the oil and depleting oxygen levels in even these refuge areas. During spill-response efforts, concern arose that sea turtles were in oiled sargassum mats that were lit afire to burn off the oil.

During June , the Center initiated litigation on multiple fronts to prevent the injury and death of sea turtles during controlled burn operations, which resulted in requirements for observers to rescue sea turtles from this unnecessary and brutal threat.

The actual exploratory drilling was approved by the Obama administration on April 6, Rather than use the court order as a timeout on new offshore oil drilling to develop a new plan, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar filed a special motion with the court to exempt approved oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Gulf of Mexico has by far the largest, best-equipped, most experienced oil spill-containment system in the nation. It has hundreds of experienced volunteer fishing boats at its disposal.

The plans to drill in the Beaufort Sea had long been opposed by the Center and other conservation groups. But in , Shell started enacting its drilling plans. The Center is calling on the Department of the Interior to permanently take that area out of consideration for future drilling. The project is now on hold and the Center is urging that it be taken off the table permanently.

We can and should improve spill-prevention technology, but no technology will ever be percent effective. The oil industry, Department of the Interior, and oil-state politicians told us for years that oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico was completely safe. BP refused to even consider the effects of a catastrophic leak in its drilling plan because it said the likelihood was too remote to imagine. The Department of the Interior agreed, approving the plan without even conducting an environmental review.
