The only membership organisation dedicated to protecting and enhancing Lake District and Cumbrian landscapes
Cumbria's dark skies allow us to see the natural wonder of the stars, but are also critical for the health of nocturnal wildlife. Sadly light pollution in Cumbria is increasing each year, threatening to obscure our view of the stars and blinding and confusing animals so they can’t feed or find a mate.
We need urgent action now to stop light pollution so we're leading a project to gain ‘Dark Skies Reserve’ status in Cumbria by 2022. Stargazers and wildlife lovers… please help.
Or you can give by text to 70085. Just message DARKSKIES along with your chosen donation amount (eg DARKSKIES 5 to donate £5). Standard message rates apply.
