40% of sea turtle hatchlings in Ft. Lauderdale go towards city lights instead of the sea. Speak up if you agree that to knowingly allow the killing of sea turtle hatchlings is wrong. Demand that Ft. Lauderdale begin to enforce it's 9 year old lighting ordinance and not weaken it as proposed, which is against Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission recommended guidelines.
We apologize in advance for the graphic nature of the video. It is impossible to understand the gravity of this issue without seeing what is happening first hand. If the City of Ft. Lauderdale is allowed to weaken their ordinance as proposed, you can expect to see many more like this.
