Southeast Florida Balloon Ban

Loggerhead Marinelife Center is partnering with cities and towns across Florida’s coastlines to implement a ban on balloons.

Balloons are often released and end up littering the beaches and the ocean.  The deflated balloons resemble jellies, a common prey item for sea turtles.  Plastic ingestion is an issue we see commonly at Loggerhead Marinelife Center and we hope that the Balloon Ban will help mitigate marine debris.
