Sea Shepherd Launches Operation Jairo, Sea Turtle Defense Campaign

Sea Shepherd Launches Operation Jairo, Sea Turtle Defense Campaign

will launch in southeastern Florida’s Broward County, another region critical to nesting sea turtles and their vulnerable hatchlings. However, while poaching is not a threat to turtles on Florida’s shores, commercial lighting is a vexing problem. Light may not seem like it could be a serious threat, but to newly hatched turtles it presents a disorientation danger, often causing the hatchlings to head away from the sea and further inland where they are at high risk of dying from dehydration or being crushed by traffic on busy roadways. Sea Shepherd will be working with the local grassroots non-profit Sea Turtle Oversight Protection (S.T.O.P.) not only to protect nests along the beaches and guide nesting turtles and hatchlings away from the light and toward the sea, but to ensure that municipalities are adhering to and enforcing crucial lighting ordinances.
