Welsh National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty come together to celebrate our Dark Skies

Print

16 February 2022

Prosiect Nos and the Snowdonia National Park Authority are proud to be working together with the whole protected landscape family in Wales to bring to you a week of online and in person events around the country.

Together, the National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are all working hard to raise awareness of light pollution and how this impacts not just our view to the stars, but also our wildlife and health.

Over the 8-day festival between the 19th-27th of February we will journey around Wales’s protected landscapes to learn more about the work that is going on there to protect our Dark Skies and what you could do to help.

Snowdonia National Park Authority’s Dark Skies Officer Dani Robertson said:

“The campaign to preserve our Dark Skies are vitally important in the effort against light pollution and climate change as well as protecting our biodiversity and cultural heritage with links to our agricultural and maritime heritage.

The Dark Sky season runs from the Autumn until Spring but most of the week’s events will be online so everyone can enjoy and learn. We hope the first ever Wales Dark Skies Week will inspire more people to play their part.”
