The clean-up: oil is painstakingly removed from this sea turtle's shell using a toothbrush. This turtle was rescued and taken to the Louisiana Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Rescue Center in New Orleans. Dr. Michael Ziccardi (right), a University of California-Davis wildlife expert, was also on the scene.
