Page 8 While efforts are made to maintain and protect Pelican Bay’s unique appeal, as ref-erenced in our community’s “Seven Goals for Pelican Bay” (which can be found online at PelicanBay.org), the Foun-dation continues to be an active steward of the Clam Bay conservation area and its beaches. These efforts include pr epar ed nes s f o r e nvi -ronmental challenges and adherence to Collier Coun-ty’s Sea Turtle Protection Regulations (Land Develop-ment Code Sec.3.10, 1994) and statewide compliance between May 1 and October 31 every year. The Collier County Environ-mental Services Department developed a program to mini-mize the damages caused by light pollution. The program is composed of an annual mail-out prior to season, night lighting compliance inspections, violation notices and enforcement action. Prior to nesting season, a sea turtle information package is sent to beachfront property owners, managers and rent-ers. The information pack-age illustrates the impor-tance of shielding or turning off lights during sea turtle nesting season, and sug-gests inexpensive methods of reducing and minimizing beach lighting. Lighting com-pliance inspections are con-ducted by Parks & Recreation continued on page 3 > PHOTO GALLERY Little Yellow Ball.
