Sea Turtle Season
Date: April 1 - October 31
Sea turtle season officially begins on April 1! Miami Beach is home to three species of endangered sea turtles (Loggerhead, Green, and Leatherback) that nest annually on our beaches. Light pollution from beachfront properties can disorient nesting adults and hatchlings. Sea Turtles mistake artificial light for the reflection of the night sky on the water - do you part in protecting our marine friends by turning off all unnecessary lighting or keeping your blinds closed. Remember that you must never disturb or harass a sea turtle.
This year, Family Service Day, has partnered with volunteercleanup.org and the Surfrider Foundation to provide volunteers with the opportunity to foster our natural environment. Surfrider will be leading a dune restoration while Volunteercleanup.org will host two beach cleanups. Lunch will be provided at noon in North Shore Open Space Park. Community service hours will be offered to volunteers. Register and learn more : Family Service Day Registration
