Turtle nesting season in the Florida Keys is from April 15 to Oct. 31. Please be aware that sea turtle mothers and hatchlings become disoriented by lights on the beach and canals with open water views from homes, condos and businesses. The hatchlings go towards the light, onto roads, fall into drains or become dehydrated and use their small energy reserves wandering or swimming in circles.
