Sea Turtles Dig in the Dark: Nesting turtles are very frightened by lights and will not lay their eggs on a lighted beach. Please help the Turtle Patrol protect and preserve our turtles by turning off beachfront lighting and using red covers on flashlights used on the beach from May 1st until October 30th. If you see a turtle on the beach, please call the HB Turtle Patrol at (910) 754-0766. After you call, please stay at least 50 feet away and keep all lights off the turtle. Before they begin to lay sea turtles are very sensitive to lights and noise and will abort the nesting if frightened.
