Don’t go towards the light – seabirds and light pollution

Environment & Nature
Don’t go towards the light – seabirds and light pollution
Event Description

What is light pollution? And how does it affect wildlife? Here James Crymble, LIFE Raft Conservation Scientist, takes us through a form of pollution that is hiding in plain sight, and discusses what we can all do to help.

All life on earth is influenced by the natural rhythm of light and dark. Day and night, dawn and dusk. This is hardwired into our DNA, influencing how living things behave, move, migrate, feed, and hunt.

But our timekeeping is very human-centric – here we take a look at what wildlife sees, and how they explore their night-time world.

Please check ferry times for travel.

This event is free for residents of Rathlin Island
