When sea baby turtles hatch, they find their way to the ocean via the downward slope of the shore and the reflection of the moon and stars on the water. Researchers believe that the hatchlings have an instinct that leads them in the brightest direction, which naturally should be moon and starlight reflecting off of the ocean.
Our necklace is a reminder to let the natural light of the moon and stars shine during hatching season. Please turn off all outdoor lights along the ocean front or look for "turtle friendly" bulbs in red, amber or yellow. The life you save may be a baby sea turtle!
