Beachfront Lighting: Before and after retrofit pictures
Below are properties that STC has retrofitted in current or past grants. The retrofitted properties follow all three rules to turtle friendly lighting: keep it low, keep it shielded, and keep it long (wavelength).
The photos on the left were taken before STC retrofitted the property, and the photos on the right were taken after STC retrofitted the property.
