Dark skies are an increasingly rare yet extremely critical natural and cultural resource in Hawaiʻi, and around the world.
Protecting native Hawaiian wildlife, including seabirds and sea turtles, means preserving the natural night sky.
Dark skies also ensure clear views of the stars for astronomy and navigation, and contribute to human health and well-being.
The Maui Nui Seabird Recovery Project is committed to raising awareness about the impacts of light pollution. You can help! Visit the links below to learn more. Contact local representatives. Download our Dark Skies pamphlet.
