Communities are starting to attack the problem of light pollution, which is harmful to migratory birds, through voluntary programs and also through legislation. Inspired by Audubon Minnesota's voluntary Lights Out program, the state of Minnesota recently enacted a law requiring all state-owned and leased buildings (totaling more than 5,000) to turn off their lights after midnight during spring and fall migration seasons.

The buildings where I work automatically switch the lights off if no motion has been detected in defined area's for certain length of time. So if you are working in a section of the building, then the lights will stay on. There are always low output lights on throughout the complex regardless so that it is never completely dark but it is only just enough to see by.

A superior court judge has ruled in favor of a coalition of conservation groups, including American Bird Conservancy (ABC), to halt the controversial practice of Trap, Neuter, and Release (TNR) of feral cats in the City of Los Angeles, pending environmental review.
