Many species of animals and insects are sensitive to artificial light at night (ALAN). Too much light and light of certain wavelengths can disrupt foraging and nesting behaviours or attract them to the light source in ways that make them vulnerable to predation. All this can lead to habitat loss and declining populations.

Advanced Lighting Technologies’ wildlife friendly lighting solutions feature specially designed dedicated amber LEDs that produce light of a narrow spectral distribution, much less visible to turtles and other wildlife. In addition, luminosity can be precisely calibrated to the needs and sensitivity of different nocturnal species and environments.

NOT ALL AMBER LEDS ARE CREATED EQUAL

Not all amber LEDs are created equal. Many phosphor converted amber LEDs still produce blue wavelength light (below left) that is visible and disruptive to wildlife, even though the light appears amber to humans. Specially designed amber coloured LEDs produce light with a narrow spectral distribution that minimises disruption to wildlife behaviour (below right). Amber LEDs also typically produce fewer lumens than their white-light equivalent, reducing disruption to wildlife even further.
