The Secret Lives Of Willy Wagtails - The Research Work of Ashton Dickerson

Dark Sky Conversations
S03E10 Ashton Dickerson
Continuing on our ecology strain of the impacts of light at night on the environment. Today. My very special guest is Ashton Dickerson, who again is with University of Melbourne. Maybe there's a little bit of work happening down there with artificial light at night. And she has made the headlines. In fact, she made Catalyst, the ABC science show in Australia, where they talked about the impacts of light at night on our urban bird species, in particular the Willie Wagtail. Enjoy.
