Light and sound pollution
Our research aims to understand the widespread and pervasive effects of artificial light at night, and sound pollution, on coastal and marine wildlife.
Through the GLOW network, PML is part of a global, collaborative initiative, studying the impacts of light pollution on coastal assemblages.
