What can I do to ensure a safe environment for sea turtles?

Florida is the second-largest Loggerhead Sea Turtle nesting area in the world. It is important that we do our best to ensure a safe nesting season for the sea turtles. Avoid unnecessary light, noise, and movement on the beach at night. Remove all litter from the beach. Avoid walking on turtle tracks or dunes where nests occur. Do not shine any lights directly on a sea turtle; this will cause her to abandon her nest. For more information please call Beaches Sea Turtle Patrol at 904-613-6081.
