SC Aquarium vet providing update on gulf help

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A veterinarian from the South Carolina Aquarium is sharing the story of his effort to help sea turtles threatened in the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

Dr. Shane Boylan meets with reporters on Friday at the aquarium in Charleston.

Boylan recently returned from working at the Audubon Institute in New Orleans, where he helped in efforts to save sea turtles at risk in the oil-coated gulf waters.

The aquarium is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. It opened in 2000 after 16 years of planning and construction. The aquarium announced earlier this year that it had retired all its debt.
