Sea Turtle Nesting Season begins in Ormond By The Sea, Florida

 East Central Florida including Ormond By The Sea, Daytona Beach and all of Volusia County are under lighting restrictions form May 1 to October 31 each year.  The restrictions are designed to protect several species of endangered and threatened sea turtles that come ashore to lay their eggs.  Balcony, porch and other lights that could potentially be seen from the beach must be turned off or shielded. Hatchlings head to the ocean when they emerge from their nest and could be confused by lights coming from the opposite direction. 

For more information about lighting visit the Volusia county web site http://volusia.org/environmental/natural_resources/seaturtles/lighting.htm

Very good blog to help the sea turtles.  Most people don't think about the lights and how important it is to keep them off to keep the babies from heading in the wrong direction.

Thanks Rhonda.  It helps the turtles but also is intended to keep the people from getting fined for breaking the lighting rules.
