Naturalist 101: Lights Out for Wildlife

April 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

For billions of years, wildlife has relied on the natural rhythms of day and night to survive.  But humans have radically disrupted these predictable cycles by lighting up the night sky.  Every year, artificial lighting has deadly consequences for our wildlife—especially nesting and hatchling sea turtles and migratory birds.

Join Mark Dodd, Senior Wildlife Biologist with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, and Adam Betuel, Director of Conservation with Georgia Audubon, as they break down the many impacts our lighting choices have on these important species and our environment. We’ll also share the simple steps you can take to help, whether visiting the beach this summer or in your very own home. You’re sure to leave with a few bright ideas on how you can be a friend to wildlife. This One Hundred Miles event is free, but please register in advance in order to receive the Zoom link.
