Sea Turtle Nesting Season 2012 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.
Female turtles come ashore beginning May first and lay their eggs in the sand above the tide line.
Balcony, porch and other lights that could potentially be seen from the beach must be turned off or shielded. Draw drapes or otherwise keep lights off that may confuse the little hatchlings.
Hatchlings head to the ocean when they emerge from their nest and could be confused by lights coming from the opposite direction.
For additional information about the lighting restrictions visit Volusiaseaturtles.org or call 386-238-4773.
Have a great day
