Humans impact on wildlife doesn’t end on the land and waters. It extends into the sky, where the growing presence of artificial light at night is affecting a range of wildlife. In the September/October issue of The Wildlife Professional, our cover story looks at how wildlife species are responding to brighter night skies and what wildlife managers are doing to address the negative effects. Our special focus looks at the role Extension services play in wildlife management, and how it could play an even greater role in the future. Other articles consider what agencies can do to support social science, innovative tools to educate diverse audiences on chronic wasting disease and how whale conservation can combat climate change. We also take a look at the many live opportunities available at this year’s Annual Conference.
