Florida Proposes New Ordinance to Protect Baby Sea Turtles
According to Local10.com officials will meet tomorrow at 5:30 PM at the Hollywood Beach Culture and Community Center to discuss a new ordinance that would protect baby sea turtles trying to find their way to the ocean for the first time. Hatchlings can be distracted from their trek to the beach by any lights in the area, thus officials are discussing dimming the lights on the beach to help the baby sea turtles find their way to the ocean. If you live in the area, please find your way down there to thank the politicians for their concern and to voice your approval for the ordinance. Hatchlings face enough threats from nature. It's about time we helped them find their way.
