Let There Be Night


The disruptive effects on animals of our penchant for bright lights has rarely impinged on public consciousness. Notable exceptions are when turtle hatchlings head inland to the bright lights of a beach resort instead of the safety of the moonlit sea, or birds collide en masse with brightly lit buildings.

It is rapidly becoming clear, though, that light pollution subtly interferes with the growth, behaviour and survival of many nocturnal species – not just those that hit the headlines.  http://tinyurl.com/3ywjb6q
