ENJOYING & PROTECTING TURTLES ON OUR BEACHES   Leave a comment

We invite you to join us in keeping our beaches “Turtle Friendly”.

• If you encounter a nesting turtle, remain quiet and observe from a distance.
• Shield or turn off outdoor lights that are visible on the beach from May through October.
• Close drapes after dark and put beach furniture far back from the water.
• Fill in holes that may entrap hatchlings on their way to the water.
• Place trash in its proper place.
• Do not approach nesting turtles or hatchlings, make noise, or shine lights at turtles.
• Do not use flashlights or fishing lamps on the beach.
• Do not encourage a turtle to move while nesting or pick up hatchlings that have emerged and are heading for the water.

THANK YOU!
