Subject: Help us understand how light and noise pollution affect wildlife!
Anthropogenic night light and noise pollution are globally pervasive forms of environmental pollution. They are increasingly changing ecosystems with important implications for biodiversity. Please help us understand how these sensory stimuli affect wildlife by participating in this survey.
This survey is a crucial part of a NASA-funded project led by Boise State University, and your input will help us inform conservation decision-making by understanding how select biological traits affect vertebrate species’ vulnerability to anthropogenic night light and noise. All responses are anonymous.
Potential participants include those with backgrounds in animal behavior, animal physiology, wildlife ecology, or sensory ecology or those with ~3 or more years of study/experience with a particular vertebrate species/genus/taxon. As examples, a PhD candidate studying sea turtle nesting success, a biologist working in Everglades National Park for ten years, or an assistant professor of wildlife ecology would all potentially be suitable for this survey. We are looking for a diverse range of participants from academia, non-governmental agencies, nonprofits, and etc. studying or working with vertebrates from across the globe to complete this survey.
We estimate the survey will take between 10-15 minutes to complete.

Thank you for helping us understand how anthropogenic night light and noise affect wildlife.
