Oil spill effects linger in the gulf
GULF OF MEXICO -- An environmental group says continuing deaths of dolphins and sea turtles are a sign that the Gulf of Mexico is still feeling effects from the oil spill.
National Wildlife Federation scientists say signs indicate something wrong with the ecosystem.
But, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Fisheries Service has previously said that many turtles probably drowned in shrimp nets and that a bacterial infection was the only common thread in the dolphin deaths.
