This EAG specifically addresses approaches to proposal design and implementation to protect marine turtles from the adverse impacts of light. This EAG sets out:
- guidance on an array of approaches available for avoiding, reducing, managing and mitigating light impacts on marine turtles to be considered when preparing documentation relevant to the EIA process and during the implementation of proposals or planning schemes; and
- alternative methods for the avoidance and management of light impacts that can be applied using a risk-based approach and by applying best practice methods.
The content of this advice has not been updated to reflect the EPA’s revised policy framework.
