  • I think this is getting rather absurd - could the problem not be a result of beach erosion and there being very little beach for anyone, including, humans to enjoy. As for the building lights, as I recall, don't turtles head towards the direction of the moon? And do I not recall the moon being in an easterly direction during the late spring? Also, the "turtle patrol" walks or rides along the beach straining to see light from the interiors of the oceanfront buildings; they seem to forget that the turtles are crawling on the sand and their necks are probably not more than a inch or two high - it would be impossible for them to peer over the dunes and see the lights from the buildings that far away. I think we are taking this turtle issue to the extreme. Pretty soon, our beaches will be closed to everyone during turtle season.
