We all have a role in protecting green turtles. Nesting season (April-July) is a critical time when turtles are at their most vulnerable; venturing into shallow waters and then onto beaches to lay their eggs. If you come across turtles while on a beach or out in a boat, we have a few top tips on how to avoid disturbing them:
  • DO keep your distance if you see any turtles on a beach, and don’t shine any light on them, as this irritates them
  • DO take your rubbish/ trash with you when you leave the beach, as turtles sometimes mistake trash for food (jellyfish)
  • DO make sure you are extra vigilant when riding jet skis or boats during these months, as turtles swim in shallow waters, making them vulnerable to being hit
  • DON'T drive on sandy beaches, which could crush turtle eggs and scare turtles away
