A female Loggerhead turtle lays her eggs on one of Tyndall's beaches. The safety of endangered species
such as this turtle is why it is important to follow beach rules like not bringing your dog to the beach.

Summer is around the corer, which
means it's time to head to the beach.
People go to the beach to relax, get
a tan and to have fun, but often forget
one thing. The beach is not just a place
to hang out, it's also home to wildlife.
Starting Memorial Day weekend, the
325th Civil Engineer Squadron will
issue tickets in force to people who
violate the rules and bring their dogs
to the beach.
"The beaches on Tyndall are Critical
Wildlife Areas," said Wesley Westphal,
325th Civil Engineer Squadron, chief
of environmental conservation.
"Dogs, and sometimes people, go
into the wildlife areas and disturb
the habitat, which is a violation of
federal and state laws."
Before the boardwalk to the
beach, there are two signs on each
side of the entrance.
On the right side of the boardwalk
entrance is a sign displaying things
not allowed on the beach and things
to be aware of.
For example, vehicles of any
type, glass containers, horses, dogs,
camping and fires are not allowed
on the beaches. Things to be aware
of are rip currents, sharp rocks,
toxic shells, stingrays, jellyfish, and
discarded fishing hooks and lines.
On the left side of the entrance
to the boardwalk is another sign.
The sign spells out in capital
letters, "NO DOGS ALLOWED
ON BEACH." The sign also
dictates the penalties of violating
Florida Administrative code 68A-
19.005 states the policy regarding
dogs on the beach.
"The beaches have been posted by
our Conservation Law Enforcement
Officer and tickets have been issued
for violation of the federal and state
regulations," said Mr. Westphal. "A
