Our turtles need your help

Please immediately call the Beach Police at 850-233-5000 if you see nesting sea turtles on Panama City Beach. Never shine lights or take flash photos of the turtle which may cause her to abandon nesting. So far this season we have seen low nesting and high numbers of false crawls. This may indicate that turtles are being disturbed while attempting to nest. Remember to remove your tents and chairs at the end of the day, pick up trash, and minimize the use of lights on the beach at night. Keep our beaches clean, dark, and flat for turtles. Thank you!
