SEA TURTLE NESTING SEASON MARCH 1 – NOVEMBER 15
St Lucie County asks residents, businesses and visitors to help conserve Sea Turtles by practicing sea turtle friendly practices such as proper beachfront lighting. Improper beachfront lighting can imperil our endangered and threatened sea turtle populations. If one observes sea turtle nest poaching or harassment of sea turtles on the beach, please call 911 or the Florida Fish and Wildlife hotline at 1-888-404-FWCC.
A new educational poster is available from the UF Bookstore. It can be placed in elevators and other public locations accessible to oceanfront residents.
