Protect the Turtles

Mexico Beach is proud to provide the highest level of protection for nesting marine turtles and their hatchlings in our community. The City has adopted standards for existing artificial light sources and new coastal construction. In addition to these standards, there are many steps visitors and residents alike can take when enjoying our beaches to protect these beautiful creatures.

  • Don’t disturb a turtle that is crawling to or from the ocean or laying eggs. Watch from a distance of at least 30 feet
  • Avoid shining lights on the beach at night as this may frighten away nesting females and, interfere with the hatchlings ability to find the sea
  • Avoid walking or cycling in nesting area
  • Avoid walking on the beach dunes
  • Don’t disturb nesting seabirds
  • Don’t litter. Cigarette butts, fishing line and other trash can harm the animals and birds along the beach
  • Rearrange lamps and other moveable fixtures away from windows
  • Use window treatments (e.g. blinds, curtains) to shield interior lights from the beach
  • Turn off unnecessary lights
