HOW TO HELP

Times of the Islands - - On The Radar -

Clean the beach when vis­it­ing.

Re­cy­cle fish­ing line, as it en­tan­gles tur­tles and other crea­tures.

Turn off your lights dur­ing sea tur­tle nest­ing sea­son (April-Oc­to­ber). Bright lights can con­fuse nest­ing moth­ers and emerg­ing hatch­lings.

Re­place dis­pos­able plas­tic bags with re­us­able bags.

Flat­ten sand struc­tures you build on the beach, and never leave fur­ni­ture or other ob­jects on the beach overnight.

Donate to SCCF’s Sea Tur­tle Pro­gram to sup­port re­lated re­search and con­ser­va­tion.
