Sea Turtle Nesting Season 2015 begins in Ormond By The Sea Florida

Sea Turtle Nesting Season 2015 begins in Ormond By The Sea Florida

East Central Florida including Ormond By The Sea, Daytona Beach and all of Volusia County are under lighting restrictions from May 1 to October 31 each year. The restrictions are designed to protect several species of endangered and threatened sea turtles that come ashore to lay their eggs. On average it takes 48-60 days for their eggs to hatch.  Female turtles come ashore beginning May first and lay their eggs in the sand above the tide line,balcony,
porch and other lights that could potentially be seen from the beach must be turned off or shielded.  Draw drapes or otherwise keep lights off that may confuse the little hatchlings.  Hatchlings head to the ocean when they emerge from their nest and could be confused by lights coming from the opposite direction.
For additional information about Sea Turtles and the lighting restrictions visit  or for more information about the Volusia County Sea Turtle nesting program please call 386-238-4668 or 386-238-4773.
