Sea Turtle Conservancy

Please Click HERE to watch a youtube video on saving sea turtles with wildlife friendly lighting from The Sea Turtle Conservancy of Florida.

When a sea turtle hatchling sees a white, unshielded light on the beach, the light will often disrupt its natural sea finding behavior and the turtle will crawl toward the light instead of the ocean. A hatchling or adult sea turtle can also become confused by artificial light and become exhausted or dehydrated on the beach. However, beachfront lights that use long wavelength light (red or amber), shielded fixtures and lowered mounting heights are not easily detected by sea turtles.

Message from President

Since 1995 the Community Association Managers of Marco Island has proudly served its community and members. Though many changes over the years have influenced the way in which our business is conducted. Members taking the opportunity to help and learn from one another has not. Both Managers and Associates work diligently to service our community associations. Factors such as time constraints, workforce availability and severe weather challenge us all. Overcoming these obstacles with education, technological advances, quality mentoring and networking are shining keys to our success. Everyone’s input and participation is an essential part of this organization. I am honored to serve as President of this fine group filled with so many professional and talented members. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or suggestions that you may have.

President, Shari Fairchild
