Clean Beach Policy

Island Essentials is proud to announce our "Clean Beach" policy!

Do to recent concerns by our employees and our town government on our Sea Turtle population and beach cleanliness; we have a new environmentally/wildlife conscious company policy. Each night we recruit the help of our customers by asking them to remove all rented items from the beach and store them in a secure location at their vacation home. If they have a physical condition which prevents them from lifting some of our heavier items we are glad to be of assistance with special arrangements, which can be made with anyone in our office.

We are so thankful to be part of such an environmentally and wildlife conscious community!

Below is some additional information about these causes and how you can help...

May 1st thru October 31st is
Sea Turtle Nesting & Hatching Season in Emerald Isle

Please HELP by observing the following:

* FILL IN ALL HOLES that your children dig (mother turtles
can get stuck AND people walking at night can be seriously injured)

* REMOVE tents, toys and beach gear overnight!

* KEEP OUTSIDE LIGHTS OFF at night (they disturb nesting
mother turtles and distract hatching baby turtles toward the light but
away from the ocean which is where they need to go)

* PICK UP TRASH especially plastic bags (turtles think they are
jellyfish which is their main food source and eat them and get sick)

* FIREWORKS ARE ILLEGAL in North Carolina (the noise
keeps mother turtles from coming on shore to nest and disturbs baby
turtles during hatching)

* CALL THE POLICE at 252-354-2021 if you see a nesting or
hatching turtle or anyone disturbing a marked turtle nest area

No flashlights or flash photography...If you see a nesting or hatching sea turtle please STAY QUIET, sit down and enjoy the show !!
