Dark Matters – Nature’s Reaction to Light Pollution
Discover the amazing night life of turtles, bats, birds, and other species. Learn how animals and their ecosystems are negatively impacted by light—much of which is so unnecessary.
Dark Matters introduces sea turtles, birds, bats, fireflies, and other fragile animals impacted by unwanted light. It also explores the importance of keeping our window to the universe dark, so that astronomers and other scientists can study outer space.
In a presentation that offers both science and compelling true stories, you’ll discover how to help the animals you care about, as well as how you can help protect the night. After all, shouldn’t everybody be able to enjoy the beauty of a star-filled sky?
Based on Joan’s title: Dark Matters—Nature’s Reaction to Light Pollution. Watch the book trailer.
