Please help us support an early restoration project that will help heal the Gulf of Mexico by protecting loggerhead turtle nesting grounds. Sign the petition today.
This critical work will go a long way toward helping the recovery of threatened sea turtle populations by:
• Eliminating or replacing existing lighting to reduce harm to turtle nesting grounds;
• Retrofitting streetlights and parking lot lights that are interfering with nesting areas; and
• Funding a public awareness campaign on the effects of lighting on sea turtle nesting grounds.
Sea turtles help connect the coastal and marine environment and local communities like few other species in the Gulf of Mexico. Let's give them some peace and quiet so they can rebuild their population.
