Hundreds of sea turtles die from red tide

OAXACA, Mexico (CNN) — Mexican authorities are
rushing to save a marine species facing an imminent threat. Conservationists
treated 32 sea turtles intoxicated by the red tide in the state of Oaxaca —
but only 11 survived.

The surviving turtles will be kept under observation for the
time being. At least 292 dead sea turtles have washed ashore since Christmas.

Experts say an algae bloom infestation is causing paralysis and
asphyxiation in the already vulnerable animals.
