Margaux Lannuzel: The “dark web”… I don’t know if we’ve ever tackled such a mysterious concept… And to shed some light on it, I welcome Baptiste Langlois, one of our journalists responsible for monitoring climate issues here at L’Express … Hello Baptist! I gave a clue by revealing your favorite subjects: we’re going to talk about the environment today…
Baptist Langlois: Yes, and one observation: the extent of light pollution alters the habitat and life cycle of many nocturnal species. Insects, attracted by sources of light, wear themselves out circling around, deer no longer dare to cross an illuminated road, migratory birds, guided by the stars, get lost because of metropolises… There are plenty of other examples: 30% of vertebrates and 65% of invertebrates (including many pollinating insects) are nocturnal and therefore impacted by this nocturnal pollution. But initiatives are launched to protect them.
Margaux Lannuzel: And the “dark network” is one of these initiatives…
