Electricity and Gas for the World!

Did you know that about 90,000 birds are killed each year when they collide into glass buildings trying to migrate through the challenging concrete forest of New York City?

A large percentage of these birds are attempting the flight at night and become highly disoriented by the lit buildings and other structures as the artificially bright lights confuse and interfere with their natural navigational cues.

The Audubon Society is therefore encouraging New Yorkers to get involved in “Lights Out New York.” This project will begin on September 1st and continue until November 1st: requiring participants to turn off the lights from midnight until dawn every night during that time period. The hope is that thousands of birds’ lives will be saved, not to mention the energy saved as well.
