When sea turtles hatch, they should be guided into the ocean by the moon, or light on the horizon. Nowadays, light pollution is driving sea turtles from their natural path, often into residential or commercial areas.
In Sarasota, Florida, one police officer was lucky enough to stumble upon several dozen hatchlings in the parking lot of the Lido Beach Resort while patrolling. The officer, Derek Conley, stopped traffic to put all of the baby turtles in a box. He then transported the turtles to the Gulf of Mexico for a safe release.
Although 3 hatchlings died before Officer Conley came to the rescue, he did manage to save 90-100 babies from almost certain doom.
