It’s the nesting season for sea turtles in Subic Bay.

The Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority Ecology Center is giving the public some reminders on how to deal with the sight of nesting sea turtles on Subic’s beaches.

“Did you know that Subic Bay beaches are nesting and hatching areas for sea turtles? Every year we are visited by at three sea turtle species,” according to the center in a Facebook post.

“These are olive ridley, green sea turtle, and hawksbill turtle. If you see them around, check out below for what you need to do,” it said.

• Do not disturb the nesting marine turtles. This includes taking pictures.
• Do not use flashlights or camera flashes. This will disorient them from nesting and return to the waters.
