Cranborne Chase AONB To Certify Dark Sky-Friendly Businesses

The Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty will present two online talks about their dark sky designation this week.

AONB dark skies expert Steve Tonkin tells us that a certification scheme for dark sky-friendly local businesses has been launched. Grants may be available to help businesses switch to lights that don’t create light pollution.

“Some people are saying that the effect of artificial light at night on the insect population is at least as bad as climate change,” says Steve.
