Many beachfront vacation destinations are home to delicate habitats, including nesting grounds for endangered sea turtles. Sea turtle hatchlings use the light and reflections from the moon to find their way to the water at night, but artificial light from hotel rooms can cause confusion for them, forcing them to crawl inland instead of into the ocean. Plus, lights from fixtures reflecting onto the beach discourage adult female turtles from nesting on the shore. One easy way to help is to make sure your drapes and blinds in your hotel room are fully closed to block all light from reaching the beach. This will help keep the natural cycle intact and protect sea turtles.
