Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina Achieves Turtle Safe Certification

PR Newswire

Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina in Fort Myers Beach, FL, has achieved the Turtle Conservancy's Turtle Safe Certification for its commitment to protecting local sea turtle populations through comprehensive turtle-friendly lighting throughout its property.

FORT MYERS, Fla., June 27, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina is proud to announce its achievement of the Turtle Conservancy's Turtle Safe Certification, highlighting its commitment to protecting local sea turtle populations. This prestigious certification recognizes the resort's comprehensive efforts to implement turtle-friendly lighting throughout its property, ensuring a safe nesting environment for these endangered creatures.

General Manager Bill Waichulis emphasizes the importance of this initiative: "Being a good citizen embodies our Socially Responsible core value, where we strive to protect our local environment, including the endangered species in our backyard."

In collaboration with the Turtle Conservancy, Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina received a grant to assist in the transition to turtle-friendly lighting. The resort has gone above and beyond, investing significantly more than the grant amount to ensure all exterior lights, including those on buildings, pool decks, guest room balconies, and street lights, comply with turtle safety standards. General Manager Bill Waichulis emphasizes the importance of this initiative:

"Being a good citizen embodies our Socially Responsible core value, where we strive to protect our local environment, including the endangered species in our backyard."

Additionally, all windows have been tinted at 15% to shield bright guest room lights from the beach, further safeguarding nesting areas.

Furthermore, Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina is currently a candidate for the Coastal Connections Certification. Having completed one of the three required walkthroughs, the resort anticipates full certification by the end of the year. This additional certification underscores the resort's ongoing efforts to enhance its environmental stewardship and promote sustainable tourism.
