As one of the 5 National projects funded by the federal government –
Reducing light pollution in Coastal Communities program 2023-4.

Our Short-tailed Shearwater Light Pollution Solutions program is set to create change:

Co-designing solutions for light pollution in coastal habitats with Moyne Shire Council.
Helping the community understand the impact of light pollution on wildlife species.
