CNN has a good visual piece on oil-coated sea turtles, reporting that as many are being found in 10 days now as were found in three months during the early days of the BP spill. Quoting NOAA wildlife workers, the report guesses that the reason is good weather and more boats looking to rescue turtles. Could be, but it could also be that more turtles are hitting oil in more places than officials know about.
