Hilton Head Island Residents Urged To Protect Sea Turtles

Hilton Head Island residents are urged to protect sea turtles by simply turning off lights facing the beach.

This, according to an article published by Hilton Head 360, the leading Media Company in Bluffton, SC. As stated in the article, Hilton Head Island has a long-standing guideline that says that lights inside homes that have windows facing the beach should be turned off from 10 PM to 6 AM. "All windows and doors facing the beach will need to have tinting or window treatments allowing only 20% of the light to be transmitted toward the beach," as stated in the article published on the Hilton Head 360 website.

According to the article, newly-hatched sea turtles follow the light. That is why no artificial light should shine on the beach. When baby turtles go in the wrong direction, they often die from dehydration or exhaustion or drown in pools, get hit by cars, or taken by predators.

In line with this, the Marketing Agency in South Carolina likewise urged homeowners to choose window treatments that conform to the town's guidelines. Among the options are roller shades and honeycomb shades. Another alternative is draperies, with blackout lining. One company that offers these special window treatments is Carolina Window Designs.
