Human Safety and Turtle Safety Can Coexist.
Anyone who spends any significant time near the beach knows that the sea turtles love to visit our beaches to lay their eggs. When the baby turtles hatch, bright lights on the shore can disorient them and inhibit their ability to find the ocean. This is why during "turtle season" you will find the lights on the broadwalk are dimmer. I guess there are some people who think dimmer city lights lowers safety for people. In Mark Foley's editorial
he makes the point that human safety and turtle safety are not mutually exclusive concepts.
