What about grilling?

Turtle Season Beachfront Rules – May 1 to October 31
Panama City Beach is an environmentally sensitive area with a protected population of Sea Turtles who visit our beach each year to lay eggs. To protect the nests and aid future generations of returning Sea Turtles, Bay County has a Sea Turtle Conservation Code, which is enforced.
Shut off or shield lights that are visible from the beach. Close drapes or blinds after dark.
Avoid using flashlights or fishing lanterns on the beach. Fires are not permitted.
Remove beach litter. Balloons, plastic bags, foam and other non-degradable pollutants cause the deaths of many sea turtles who mistake them for food. Quietly observe a nesting turtle from a distance. Do not shine any lights on or around her -- she may abandon her effort to nest. No flash photography. Stay behind the turtle so that she cannot see you.
Do not harass a turtle by touching her or prodding her to move. Stay out of the way as she crawls back to the water.
Stack or remove beach furniture every night and bring towels back to the house.
Leave sea turtle nest identification markers in place on the beach. Leave nest sites undisturbed. If you find a hatchling wandering in daylight, place it on moist sand in a dry container.
Guests are responsible for all fines imposed for code violations. To report dead or injured sea turtles, or, if you have accidentally hooked a sea turtle that is small enough to rescue, contact: Turtle Watch 850-763-4303
