Do not disturb sea turtles, nests, or eggs - it's against the law!
If you encounter a nesting turtle, keep lights off, remain still, and keep your distance.
Report all dead, injured, or stranded sea turtles or harassment of adults, hatchlings, or nests to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at 1-888-404-FWCC (3922).
Turn off coastal lights and keep flashlights and phones off while on the beach at night.
Reduce litter and marine debris - especially fishing line and plastic.
Keep pets away from nesting females, nests, and hatchlings.
Always fill in holes dug in the sand and knock down sand castles.
Do not disturb nest markers - organizations monitor sea turtles.
Operate your boat with caution- sea turtles are found offshore, nearshore and inshore (Lake Worth Lagoon and the Intracoastal Waterway), and have to surface to breathe.
