Nocturnal Habitat Restoration through Research and Education

Life on earth has evolved under a delicate natural balance of light and darkness,
but human activity is changing this balance.

Over the last 25 years, the world has gotten 50% brighter, and natural darkness is rapidly being erased from our collective experience.

The absence of natural darkness impacts the balance of the entire ecosystem, with negative impacts on the health and survival of all biological life.

We believe that dark sky conservation is crucial for preserving the nocturnal habitat and protecting wildlife from the harmful effects of light pollution. By reducing light pollution and promoting the preservation of natural nighttime habitats, we can help safeguard the delicate balance of ecosystems and protect the beauty of the night sky.

Our dark sky conservation efforts include research, education, and outreach programs to increase awareness of the negative impacts of light pollution and promote conservation efforts.

Where We Work

Our primary base is Kenya, where we hope to understand the effects of artificial light on wildlife, the role of light pollution in human-wildlife conflict, and existing cultural perspectives of darkness and light. Through this we hope to develop transferable methodologies to a wide range of locations with similar characteristics.

Past Projects

Kenya Light Pollution Database: Light pollution is an understudied subject on the African continent. The database aims to use existing research to better understand the scope of the issue in Eastern Africa and encourage nocturnal habitat protection in Kenya and across the African continent. 


Through strategic research partnerships with individuals and conservation organisations, we aim to get a better and more holistic understanding of nocturnal ecological issues in target areas.


Light pollution is a relatively underrepresented ecological threat, and through targeted awareness raising and community education activities, we strive to introduce dark sky conservation into general conservation discourse.
