Lighthouse navigates turtles 2 their death

Sea turtles use light as a navigation tool, instinctively moving toward light at night. A lighthouse in Florida casts an extremely bright, 1,000-watt light that disorients sea turtle hatchlings and makes them wander inland to their death. The U.S. Coast Guard is currently evaluating the lighthouse. Ask them to take some simple measures to protect endangered sea turtles!
