Sea Turtle Nesting Season is Here - Coastal Property Owners Encouraged to Check Lighting

Lights Out for Sea Turtle Nesting Season begins May 1st and runs through October 31. Now is the time for coastal property owners and businesses to make sure they are in compliance with the county and city lighting ordinances. No artificial lighting sources can be visible from or illuminate the beach at night. Artificial lights discourage female turtles from nesting on the beach and cause hatchlings to become disoriented.

Beach goers are also asked not to dig holes in the sand above the high tide line. For more information, contact the Sea Turtle Preservation Society at 676-1701 or go online: seaturtlespacecoast.org.
