MARCO ISLAND, Fla. – Last night, Marco Island Police Officers along with staff from Collier County Parks & Recreation were able to rescue sea turtle hatchlings that became disoriented after leaving their nest.

According to officials, the hatchlings became confused because of the condo lights in the area. Thankfully, officers were able to round up as many hatchlings as possible and hope to release them later this evening.

Officials want to remind the public to please turn off all of their unnecessary lights, close their blinds, and shield all light sources along the beach during nesting season.
