IDSW Presentation DescriptionMany animal species depend on the natural nighttime environment to move and migrate. Under the cloak of darkness, wildlife may go unnoticed. In a light-polluted environment, everything changes. Let’s get to know the creatures of the night with an interactive sound-based ‘pop quiz’, understand how light pollution puts them at risk, and explore ways to partner advocacy for biodiversity with advocacy for dark skies. Date – April 22  Time – TBD
