Sea Turtle awareness

Win a Turtle Necklace!

And Help Keep Our Beaches the Way Our Turtles Like It ...  Clean, Dark and Flat!

Endangered and threatened sea turtles nest on our beaches from May through October.  Loggerhead, Green, Leatherback and Kemp's Ridley sea turtles crawl ashore and lay their eggs in the sand. The hatchlings crawl out of the nest to find safety in the warm Gulf waters which are illuminated by moonlight. It's a dangerous trip given sea birds and other natural predadors. However their journey can be made even more perilous by artificial lighting, trash anddeep holes or sand walls on the beach.

Shine On with the beauty of our amazing beaches and remember how our sea turtles like it:

 

CLEAN. Remove all belongings, including trash, when you leave.

 

DARK.  Artificial lights disturb nesting sea turtles and hatchlings. Turn off all lights on or near the beach and close all curtains and blinds in windows facing the beach.

 

FLAT.  When you leave the beach each day please knock down you sand castles and fill in your holes.
