Cut the Glow to help turtles go

Cut the Glow to help Turtles Go

Nesting female sea turtles and hatchlings are disorientated by artificial light. Disorientation results in turtles wandering onto land, potentially leading to death or injury.

The department's Cut the Glow to Help Turtles Go community awareness campaign aims to reduce the glow from lights affecting nesting sea turtles on beaches in the greater Bundaberg area.

During the breeding season from November to March, you can help by joining the campaign and following some easy guidelines to reduce light glow.

The department's information booklet Cut the Glow to Help Turtles Go is packed with great tips on how to reduce light glow from your home, business or shop.
