Turtle nesting beach,street lights out (for Paolo)

Street lights on A1-A in Ft.Lauderdale are turned off from march till the end of october so the turtle hatchlings don`t become disoriented and go towards the lights instead of the ocean.In 2012 volunteers saved 20,000 hatchlings that were going towards the lights.Volunteers think that is 40% of what was hatched.
