It’s magical to see baby turtles make their way back to the sea. When coastal communities install sea turtle friendly lighting, they help sea turtles nest successfully and the turtles that emerge from the nests are guided safely to the ocean. Darker Beaches, Brighter Futures, was created by Two-Head Video to help Sea Turtle Conservancy (STC) further explain the importance of sea turtle friendly lighting. The STC developed a sea turtle friendly lighting initiative where lighting displays, called “Turtle Vision” were created that demonstrate and explain the fundamentals of proper sea turtle friendly lighting for oceanfront properties. The displays, which include this video, are traveling across Florida to conservation centers through 2014.
