Cut the Glow to help turtles go

Turtles need dark beaches! They can’t change their behaviour towards light so it’s up to us to help maximise nesting success and hatchling survival. During the breeding season (mid- October to April) whether you are a resident, visitor or business, you can help cut the glow of lights affecting beaches in your local area. Cut the Glow to help turtles go From 7.30pm: • switch off unnecessary lights • close your curtains and blinds • use motion sensor lights for external lights • position your lights so they face away from the beach • plant vegetation to create a light buffer • when camping, shade lights to reduce the illuminated area • only use a small torch (less than 3 volts) on the beach.
