Sea Turtles Protected by LED Measurement

Case Study: Sea Turtles protected by LED Measurement
Disorientation from artificial lighting on marine turtle nesting beaches causes numerous hatchling deaths each year in Florida. Sea turtle hatchlings have a natural tendency to move toward the brightest direction, which is normally the moonlight reflecting off of the ocean. With an excessive amount of artificial lighting, hatchlings are drawn inland, frequently causing them harm. The brightness and glare of artificial lighting disrupts their ability to find the sea from their nest. Read More >
