What You Can Do to Help Sea Turtles in South Carolina

  • Obey local and county lighting ordinances.
  •  Observe from a distance. If you encounter a nesting turtle, do not shine lights on her or take flash photography.  Stay behind the turtle so she cannot see you. Lights and human presence can cause her to abandon her nest effort.
  •  Do not touch or prod an animal to move. Stay out of the way as she crawls back to the water.
  • Turn off exterior lights visible from the beach, dusk to dawn, from May through October.
  •  Close blinds and drapes on windows where interior lights can be seen from the beach or ocean.
  •  No flashlights, fireworks or bonfires on the beach.
  •  Fill in large holes dug on the beach at the end of the day because adult sea turtles and hatchlings can become trapped in them.
  •  Remove beach chairs and other items from the beach and dunes at the end of the day that could obstruct a sea turtle when nesting or emerging hatchling.


If you encounter sea turtle hatchlings on the beach or an emerging nest:

  • Do not approach any sea turtle hatchlings, give them plenty of space.
  • Do not carry, guide or help sea turtle hatchlings to the ocean.
  • Do not shine any lights on or take flash photography of the hatchlings.
