I imagine it limits their ability to find the ocean. They also sense and use the Earth’s magnetic fields to know which direction to go in. I believe this also helps them find the sea. My understanding is that light is one of many queues they use to find the ocean. That being said, I’m no expert.

Yes, and unfortunately ones born on beaches near the city tend to have worse survivability. Since they mistake the city’s artificial light for the moonlight (which they use to navigate toward the ocean), they end going wrong the way and end up in storm drains, incoming traffic, or worse :(
