Disco Lights Scramble Turtle Eggs

This is exactly what I look like after a night at the Disco…

Disco lights are luring baby turtles to their
deaths on the fringes of a Greek marine park.
Environmentalists say that rare loggerhead turtles scramble out at night
from eggs in the sand on beaches in the west Greek island of Zakynthos
and instinctively head for the brightest horizon — normally the white
foam of waves under the stars. REUTERS
