Who We Are

Light pollution is the fastest growing pollutant around the globe, with scientific research showing an average increase year-on-year of more than 2%. This excess light, or wasted energy, is:

  • increasing greenhouse gasses and our carbon footprint

  • endangering ecosystems 

  • altering biochemical or circadian rhythms 

  • losing our connection to cultural heritage

 

The Australasian Dark Sky Alliance (ADSA) is an independent non-profit organisation formed to:

  • educate the public and policymakers about night sky conservation;

  • promote environmentally responsible outdoor lighting;

  • assist in the designation of IDA Dark-Sky Places

  • create business opportunities, and

  • celebrate our night sky heritage.

Since its inception in early 2019, the movement has quickly gained momentum with community groups, councils and media all around the country hungry for more information.
