Help keep our beaches safe! Digging holes can cause harm to both people and wildlife. Never dig a hole deeper than it is wide, and always be sure to fill them in!  ????
Guess who’s back, back again? Yes, it’s us, tell a friend!
????‍♀️ (No seriously, share this post to help spread awareness about the dangers of digging large holes on the beach.)
We cannot stress this enough, ❗️ Sand collapses occur in holes just a few feet deep. NEVER dig a hole deeper than it is wide. Children and adults should not dig holes deeper than their knees when standing in them.
Why are they dangerous?
???? Did you know that national statistics comparing sand hole collapses to shark attacks confirms that!
????‍⚕️ No one goes to the beach expecting to leave with a broken ankle or worse. Sand holes can cause numerous injuries to other beach-goers.
???? Sand holes make it challenging for first responders to quickly get to an emergency on the beach, and they can cause damage to the responder's vehicles and create a secondary emergency.
???? Who doesn’t love cute little sea turtles?! Sand holes can trap hatchlings and their mother, which can result in a fatal ending.
We recommend leaving any digging to the little ghost crabs.???? However, if you do dig a hole on the beach, ONLY dig shallow holes and ALWAYS fill it in once you're finished. Help keep everyone on our beaches safe, including yourself.
Thanks for making it through this lengthy post. ???? Don't forget to share!
