With Loggerhead Sea Turtle nesting season well underway, advocates for their protection are trying to get new ordinances passed that would affect lighting on existing homes and those under construction, require approved lightbulbs and light fixtures, and regulate large holes and litter left on the beach, including abandoned tents and chairs by beachgoers.
- Remove litter – trash cans and recycle bins are provided up and down the beach
- Do not leave any tents or chairs up overnight
- Take down sand castles and fill in holes
- If you’re on the beach at night, use a red flashlight, or shield your flashlight or phone screen with something red or orange
If you’d like more information about helping the turtles, here are a few resources you can contact:
