Sea Turtle Hatch Gone Wrong FT 4
FT4 Ft. Lauderdale FL
1 in every 3 sea turtle hatchlings go to the lights of the city instead of the ocean, despite strict laws and protections that are not enforced. You will go to prison if you touch a nest, but you can kill the entire nest with a light and nothing will happen.
This video was taken on June 17 2011 on South Ft. Lauderdale Beach. 100% of the nest would have been lost if a volunteer had not been there waiting for it from dusk until dawn all week long.
to tell them to enforce the law.
