Inspectors tagged several of Marriott Resort condo apartments that face the ocean for inappropriate lighting after dark. Our turtle season goes from March 1- October 31. During this time, if you are in a front facing unit, you must have your lights out in the front of your apartment (master bedroom, living room, dining room) no later than 9 pm. If you need your lights on you must have blacked out shades or curtains drawn on your windows.
We have one nest so far, about midway on the beach. It is staked. Volunteers walk our beach every morning to identify nests, count crawls and to attend to the clutches (nests). Each week the volunteers will become busier because June, July and August are the most active turtle months for us.
