Recently developed tourism infrastructure, including ten-story hotels and neon-lit discos, is obscuring the moonlight, disorienting the female turtles as they seek out beaches to lay their eggs. Often the confusion leads them to assume that the hotel pools are the sea and they end up laying their eggs in the pool flowerbeds. Once the eggs hatch, the hatchlings are unable to find their way to the sea and die. The stringent building regulations that protected the turtles in the past are being flouted openly by organized criminals who either bribe or terrorize officials into turning a blind eye.

Which of the following can be inferred from the above passage?

AScarcity of turtles results in ecological imbalance of sea.
BChemicals in pool water are not safe for turtles.
CMoonlight is the only source of light for turtles.
DTurtles are guided by moonlight.
EOrganized gangs are ignoring building restrictions.
