Sea Turtles-Hurricane

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Workers are checking on sea turtle nests
along the Gulf Coast to determine which survived the high tides
that washed ashore ahead of Hurricane Alex last week.
Chuck Underwood, spokesman for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service, said the remaining nests will be moved in coming days to a
facility along Florida's Atlantic coast to prevent them from dying
in the oil-filled Gulf of Mexico.
Scientists are expected to relocate 70,000 turtle eggs in up to
800 nests buried in the sand across the Florida Panhandle and
