Mismanaged artificial lights from our residences, roadways, businesses, and more can negatively impact sea turtles by disrupting their natural orientation cues, leading to confusion and even death. This talk will explore how lights affect sea turtles, protective measures put in place for sea turtles, and how coastal residents or visitors, such as yourself, can help.
