Every year, thousands of birds are killed when building lights are left on.
Choose your tweet to help spread the word:
Many species of birds, including species at risk, migrate at night. They use age-old patterns of light from the moon, stars and setting sun as navigational tools to follow their migration routes.
Lights left on at night lure birds into urban areas. Disoriented, birds can collide with building's windows and walls. During the day, birds collide with our home and office windows because they cannot see glass.
Continued awareness of this issue will encourage building owners to practice responsible light control at night and minimize window reflection and transparency during the day.
So help us spread the word and save millions birds one tweet at a time.
