Webinar: Starving for Darkness
May 11 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

How exterior lighting impacts wildlife.

Since the industrial revolution and the invention of the electric light bulb, the natural ecosystems of the Earth spend more and more time bathed in artificial light within a 24-hour cycle. How does the artificial light and lack of darkness impact wildlife? How does the obstruction of the night’s sky affect bird migration, pollination, and reproduction?

Much of the study of light and health has been dedicated to the impact of light upon humans, however animals and plants are also intrinsically photosensitive and subject to the unwanted effects of stray light. How can a rethinking of design and codes alleviate some of these harmful effects?

Learning Objectives:

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify exterior lighting conditions that can be harmful to wildlife.
  2. Look at existing case studies and projects that have caused harm to wildlife.
  3. Understand existing lighting regulations and how these can support wildlife, and what can be done to improve existing standards.
  4. To look at existing case studies and projects that have been designed for the wellbeing of wildlife habitats and the environment.
