Never before has biodiversity been in such danger, especially because of noise and light pollution.
From Canada to India, from Australia to Europe, lockdowns made essential by the COVID-19 pandemic have given the natural world an unprecedented opportunity to reclaim what we have taken from it. As wild animals evolved in a quieter world, scientists took the opportunity to fully grasp their behaviors. And whether it is about turtles’ egg-laying, birds migration or insects reproduction, the positive effects are already visible.
By following the large-scale experiments launched across the world a few months ago, this film observes what happens in the wild when the nights are dark and the days are silent.
