Light Pollution

For a female sea turtle to lay eggs. It has to be night, and very dark so she can hide her eggs from predators. Artificial light on beaches (really no reason for them to there. You really shouldn't be on the beach late at night anyway.) discourage females from laying there eggs and the population decease.
