In recent years, the sea turtle population has declined due to many factors, one being artificial lighting. Lighting near the shore may cause hatchlings to become disoriented and wander inland, where they can die of dehydration or predators. Although lighting is essential in keeping areas safe and illuminated, many fixtures have a damaging effect on turtles and other wildlife.
Wave Lighting’s Turtle Friendly fixtures help reduce sea turtle disorientation while also providing illuminated area for public places. These Turtle Friendly fixtures direct light down towards the ground where it is needed, and also shields the light from being visible from the ocean.
