What is Turtle-Friendly Lighting?

Lighting pollution is a serious threat to sea turtles. Turtle-friendly lighting is lighting designed to minimize the impact that traditional lighting can have on turtles and wildlife near oceans and beaches. In order to protect turtles and wildlife, the Florida Wildlife Commission (FWC) mandates that lights must be “low, long, and shielded.” To this end, a number of standards for lighting fixtures approved for turtle areas have been created:

  • Fixtures must be fully shielded and downward directed
  • The light source must be long wave-length, 560 nanometer light or higher to ensure that the light is not visible to turtles and other wildlife
  • Fixtures must have low wattages which equal low brightness

The FWC only certifies fixtures that are visible by the shoreline.
