Sea Turtle Hatchling Rescue

Posted in Community Involvement

Star brite with Guy Harvey - Angels of the Sea AwardSea Turtle Oversight Protection
, a not for profit volunteer group based in Ft. Lauderdale Florida, had major success for the hatchlings last season thanks to the efforts of all the rescue volunteers in the field and those who worked with the condo's and businesses to raise awareness. Since 2010, over 40,000 hatchlings have been rescued and released that would have otherwise died because of improper lighting that attracts the hatchlings to the city instead of the ocean. S.T.O.P. has helped make some
Monumental changes in the protection management and lighting compliance in Broward County and educated thousands of tourists eager to learn.

Since 2010, Star brite has been instrumental in the development and hosting of the
http://SeaTurtleOP.org website which serves to map Broward County nests, schedule volunteers and collect vital nest statistics that will be used by FWC and Broward County municipalities to help save these majestic creatures from extinction.
Star brite also donated new, clean buckets for all volunteers to safely transport the rescued hatchlings that become disoriented because of improper lighting.
