    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration places the figure at 444 turtles found alive and taken in since April 30th, according to this article. All of the turtles found alive are endangered species, and almost all of them have made speedy recoveries. After regaining their strength, the turtles are released back into the wild.

    Of the 522 turtles found dead, the NOAA only reported that 17 of those were oiled. The cause of death has not been discussed.
