Endangered sea turtles sue over Broward beach practices


The lawsuit contends lighting, overnight placement of beach cabanas and raking of beach sand all disrupt the turtles’ nesting habits and blocks the journey of turtle hatchlings to the ocean. The turtles are asking a judge to halt those practices and also block some aspects of a major beach renourishment project.

The defendants include the federal, state and local government entities, as well as two large beachfront condominium associations.
