For humans, and wildlife exposure to bright light at night can interfere with natural circadian rhythm by suppressing production of melatonin, the chemical that regulates sleep patterns.
Research has linked this disruption to sleep disorders, depression, obesity, breast cancer and more. Wildlife is also harmed by light pollution.
The decline of lightning bugs, the death of birds during migration, and the fatal disorientation of newly hatched sea turtles are only a few examples.
