rewilding the night


The night sky inspires awe, wonder, and respect, but this precious natural resource is under constant threat from light pollution. In Grand Teton National Park, social and biological scientists are studying the effects of night sky-friendly lighting on people and bats to see if darker night skies can inspire deeper connections with nature, protect an intricate ecosystem, and bring a little bit of the wild back into our lives.
