Disturbing Sea Turtles Is A Crime

Sea turtle season runs from April 1 - October 31 each year.

The Marine Turtle Protection Act, Section 379.2431 of the State of Florida statutes makes it illegal to handle or disturb a sea turtle, its hatchlings, nest or eggs. Violations of the code can include fines and time in prison depending on the severity of the violation.

To report a violation, or if you find a sick, disoriented or injured sea turtle, contact:

• Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) at 1.888.404.FWCC (3922) or *392 from your mobile device.
• Miami-Dade County Sea Turtle Alert Hotline at 305.310.3046, or 786.719.6836 after hours.
• Miami Beach Police Department at 305.673.7901

Fight the Bite

Take precautions against mosquito-borne illness by applying bug spray, avoiding areas with high mosquito populations, and wearing long pants and shirts when possible - especially during sunrise and sunset when mosquitoes are most active.

To prevent the bite and spread of disease by mosquitoes, remember to drain and cover.

  • Flush water from water-bearing plants so they don't become a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Disposing of excess water at least once a week disrupts the mosquitoes' life cycle, preventing mosquito egg deposits and killing existing larvae in the process.
  • Survey your garden and backyard, checking landscaping for current and future locations of standing water. Mosquitoes need as little as a bottle cap of water to reproduce, so every little bit counts.
  • Eliminate all sources of standing water by emptying potential water-holding yard items, including pots, buckets and wheelbarrows weekly. Make sure to drain items more frequently following rainfall.
Gas-Powered Leaf Blower Ban - Full Enforcement Now in Effect
The Miami Beach City Commission voted unanimously to phase out gasoline-powered leaf blowers as part of the city’s commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. 

Similar to the city’s regulation on polystyrene and plastic straws/stirrers, the new ordinance followed a phased implementation approach. The nine-month warning period began on November 1, 2022 and ended on July 31, 2023. Full enforcement is now in effect.

Initial violations in a 12-month period carry a $250 fine while the second violation in a 12-month period carries a $500 fine. The third violation and each additional violation in a 12-month period carries a $1,000 fine.
