You can help keep garbage from regularly entering the sea in any case by reusing and reducing the amount of rubbish that you make.

You can likewise maintain a strategic distance from other single-use things, similar to baloons during a birthday beach bash, which will probably end up in the sea where they will be eaten by turtles and other creatures.

Keep beaches dark at night

Settling turtles and hatchlings use the moon's natural lighting as a guide. Instinctually, they pursue the brightest light to discover their way to the water, however on the off chance that they are disoriented by artificial lighting, they may wander inland with no direction and die from dehydration or predation.

Maintain a strategic distance from all types of artificial light while at the sea shore around evening time, including electric lamps, flash photography, video cameras, and flames on nesting sea shores. On the off chance that you do need lighting, attempt to avoid directly illuminating the sea shore, using a shade to limit the measure of light sparkling in the territory. If staying at a beachfront property, be sure to turn off all lights at night.
