Why Choose a Sea Turtle Lighting Bollard?
The key to turtle- and wildlife-friendly fixtures is shielded or indirect amber-colored light. For thousands of years, turtle hatchlings have used the moon and stars—the brightest lights in the sky—to guide them to the ocean. Turtles and other wildlife cannot see amber-colored light over 560 nanometers, thus these luminaires are safe to install near nesting areas. Non-compliant lighting (below 560 nanometers) causes baby turtles to move away from the ocean and instead toward artificial lights. Furthermore, non-compliant light deters egg-laying turtles, resident wildlife, and also disrupts migratory bird patterns.
More and more shore regions are tightening restrictions on light pollution by enforcing strict regulations on the fixtures installed in coastal communities. Choose turtle- and wildlife-friendly fixtures from Access Fixtures to make your property compliant while protecting wildlife and providing safe egress for humans.

Sea Turtle Lighting Bollard LEDs operate between 585 and 595 nm, greater than 560nm required for wildlife compliance.
