Simple things you can do to help seaturtles -

  • Appreciate the light of the moon and stars (other beach lights can lure hatchlings away from the sea).
  • Keep beaches clear of marine debris and trash.
  • Give turtles and nests space.
  • Participate in habitat restoration events and beach clean-ups.
  • Report injured or dead turtles (305-230-1144).
  • Spread the word about sea turtles and the challenges they face.
