Fight the Light
Light pollution is a common term referring to artificial light that shines where it is neither wanted nor needed. Nocturnal animals like moths and bats are active at night. Artificial light can be a fatal attraction to insects. Some predators exploit this attraction to their advantage, resulting in declining insect populations in some places and impacting on other species that rely on these insects for food or pollination.
Artificial light can cause birds that migrate or hunt at night to wander off course, or to migrate too early or too late and miss ideal conditions for nesting and foraging.
As humans, we too adhere to a circadian rhythm (our biological clock that is governed by the day-night cycle). Too much artificial light at night can disrupt that cycle making it difficult for us to sleep well.
