December 4, 2009, Newsletter Issue #8: Do Not Disturb

Tip of the Week

If you like to read in bed, use a battery-operated light that can be attached to your book instead of leaving the room light turned on. If you're out in the country, having lights on at night can disrupt ecosystems:

Nocturnal animals, such as salamanders, may remain concealed up to an hour longer, leaving them less time to hunt; Birds that use the moon and stars to navigate are disoriented by the lights; Turtle hatchlings that should remain hidden are lured out by the light and wander into the open view of predators. Turning off the lights at night not only saves energy but also helps save species.
