Lights Out for Turtles!
Posted Date:
Turtle season begins May 1 and ends October 31 each year. Beachfront properties should have turtle-friendly lighting in place by May 1, with beach furniture and umbrellas placed at or behind the dune line each night.

Each year, hundreds of sea turtles nest on Longboat Key's beaches. Each sea turtle may lay five to seven nests of approximately 100 eggs each.  Please review Coastal Living with Sea Turtles  to learn what you can do to help protect the sea turtles that nest on our beaches.
