Lighting pollution 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-length 560 nanometer light
→ Low wattage fixtures = low brightness
The FWC only certifies fixtures that are visible by the shoreline. Below are our Florida Wildlife Commission Certified Turtle-Safe lighting products.
