Turtle Glass Saving Our Young Friends Along The Coast

Summertime in Florida brings an abundance of sunshine and plenty of trips to the beach. But did you know that warmer weather on the coast also brings sea turtle nesting season? Sea turtle nesting season, which runs from March through October on the Atlantic coast and from May through October on the Gulf coast, is the time of the year when female sea turtles begin laying their eggs in the sand and then return to the warm ocean water. Within two months, the eggs hatch and the baby sea turtles make their way to the water.

Because young sea turtles migrate to the water at night, following the light of the moon, they often get disoriented by lights coming from homes and condos along the beach. These artificial lights can lead sea turtles away from the ocean, costing them their lives. So, how can Florida homeowners help protect these sea turtles during nesting season? Turtle glass.

What is turtle glass?

Turtle glass is glass that has been tinted to reduce light projection and has a visible light transmittance of 45% or less.

Why is turtle glass required in certain areas?

In 1993, the Florida Department of Natural Resources adopted the Model Lighting Ordinance for Marine Turtle Protection, which requires local municipalities to develop guidelines for controlling beachfront lighting and protecting the habitat of marine turtles. Beachfront residents and businesses are required to close their blinds or drapes and limit outside lights after 9 p.m. during sea turtle nesting season. Turtle glass is the perfect alternative – limiting light but still allowing residents to protect their view.
