Some Local Customs that Strangers Find Unusual in Panama city Beach

Published on February 14, 2018 by scottdenese

Sea Turtle Season coincides with us beach lovers Starting in may and running threw October.While most of us are only traveling from a couple hundred yards to several hundred miles, some of these beautiful endangered  creatures are traveling 3700 miles back to where they were born to lay there eggs . yep you guessed it to the very same place we all love to go .

  • Never get too close to a sea turtle. They need their space while nesting and not giving that to them could cause them to become frightened and head back towards the water.
  • As much as you want to capture a sea turtle on camera, it’s critical to never use flash photography in their direction. This can disorient them and make them go back into the ocean where the eggs will be lost.
  • Avoid walking the beach at night as much as possible, and if you do, don’t use any light to guide your way.

It’s also important for beachgoers to pick up all their trash before they leave and knock down any sand castles they may have built during the day. Failure to comply with these guidelines may result in heavy fines.

So while you are here and you see a sign posted turtle nest please don't disturb it in any way .
