They watched this happen and didn't stop it to make a point? Like anyone who cares woouldn't sign the petiiton unless they see the turtle die?! WTF? I can't believe these people have any compassion or the best interests of the turtles if they think even one life i s not important enough to save. And what is with the psycho music so you can't hear the narrative?

Julie. No, we did not watch this happen. We got there late because we were rescuing other nests while this one went into the street and filmed the aftermath, saving what we could. This happens every night. We do the best we can but only have a limited number of State permit spots allows and we all have full time day jobs too. There are many miles to cover from dusk until dawn and we can't be everywhere. We are just volunteers here and have little finances other than our own to support any...

But last year we rescued 20,000 hatchlings from this same fate. We have tons of videos showing rescues, but you can truly only understand the consequences when you see what happens when we are not there or better yet, pick them up in person alive when they are running across the street. And sorry about the music. This video was made to try to make you feel the way we do every time we miss a nest and get no support from the City.

Video is a little odd. Glad IDA is involved.

Yes. Sorry the video is a bit real. It is really what happens when we miss a nest and needs to be seen to understand how gruesome it gets on the streets. By the end of the season our brain and emotions are mush. We have others that show rescues. But if the City weakens the ordinance, things will get worse.

We travel to Florida several times a year to see the sea turtles nest, and always educate others along the way. It is a wonderful experience, all of it. The East coast beaches of Florida could benefit by re-introducing dunes and dune vegetation at the back end of the beach. This would allow for lighting on the back side of the dunes which would reflect light away from the ocean (if the lighting is done correctly). It also would provide a potential barrier to hatchlings which have crawled the wrong way.

Too bad Ft. Lauderdale does not feel that way about dunes and dune vegetation. As a matter of fact, STOP's first court case last year was trying to save one of the LAST dune systems (Mayan Dune) on South Ft. Lauderdale beach. It was destroyed despite our hardest efforts.....

We need the turtles in the ocean, I hope the idea of lighting done correctly would be the answer to everyone.
