Light pollution is often neglected

Light pollution can negatively impact ecosystems around urban areas in many ways. For example by affecting animals. Animals are affected because natural biological activities and behaviors are disturbed. For example, fireflies emit flashes of light in their abdomen at night to attract mating partners. With light pollution, their lights are less well visible and their communication gets disturbed. Learn more about the negative impact of light pollution and what we can do to prevent it:

    Bio diversity needs to be conserved. The light aspect has not been fully taken into consideration.

          @peter_karanga many people don't know or understand light pollution and unfortunately those who knows and understands its existence tend to ignore it.

              Very true, it is often absent from the public debate but it's destructive for biodiversity!
