Following a summary of Society and conservation news and events, guest speaker Alicia Dimovski from La Trobe University will speak on ‘The dark side of energy-efficient lighting: LED lights are giving wildlife the blues.’

In a bid to reach climate change targets we have begun implementing sustainable lighting to reduce CO2 emissions and save costs, but an unexpected negative impact may be hiding in the dark. We will investigate the ecological and health consequences associated with these bright white lights, and explore the use of ‘wildlife friendly’ lighting to reduce our impacts.

Supper to follow.
