Volunteers Relocate Turtle Eggs from Gulf Beaches

The AP reports government officials are about to begin a massive effort to relocate 70,000 turtle eggs from Florida and Alabama beaches that are affected by the BP oil spill. The US Fish and Wildlife Service is reportedly going to dig up 800 nests and transport them to Kennedy Space Center where it is hoped they will hatch. But as the video below shows, some volunteers along the Gulf Coast have already started their own rescue efforts.
