It’s officially sea turtle hatching season and one Atlantic Beach man is thankful his city recently passed an ordinance to help protect them. The ordinance is aimed at the way homes and businesses along the beach control their nighttime lighting, as lighting can distract the turtles away from the ocean and into dangerous conditions. The bill suggests pointing outside lights down, adding a shield to the lights that point to the ground and using blinds or curtains to shield interior lights from the beach. It also reminds people that the most sea turtle friendly lighting is a red or amber LED light.
