Protect Our Sea Turtles~Lights Out!

May 1st began the start of the six month sea turtle nesting season along our beaches. According to the Volusia Sea Turtle Society, 2008 was a record season for sea turtles in our area and they are optimistic about 2009.

Last August the volunteers captured a Green Turtle laying its eggs on our beach. The pictures are wonderful.

Please remember to black out all lights on the beach between now and October 31st. Here are some more tips for helping the turtles.

Enjoy the beach, save the turtles!
