Cruise ships to dim lights at night in New Zealand
« on: April 16, 2019, 09:13:48 AM »
"The cruise ship industry is taking steps to try prevent seabirds getting stunned by bright lights at night and dying.

Young seabirds are most of risk of crash landing on cruise ships during the night, DOC says.

In a dramatic incident in Auckland last year, about 60 seabirds ended up on the deck of a cruise ship after being attracted by the vessel‘s bright lights.

Some died because they were boxed up together and became distressed."
