Lighting polution is a serious threat to sea turtles. To protect them, the FWC (Florida Wildlife Commission) has set a standard for lighting fixtures approved for turtle areas.
- Fixture must be fully shielded and downward directed
- Light source shall be long wave 560 nanometer light
- Low wattage fixtures = low brightness
The FWC only certifies fixtures that are visible by the shoreline.
