Abstract

Light pollution around the world is rising due to increased use of artificial light and poor lighting practices. To promote better lighting practices in Puerto Rico, our team developed a program to measure light levels and evaluate lighting practices in coastal regions. This program was applied in one coastal community. Our findings were used to provide recommendations to educate community members and promote voluntary cooperation with current lighting regulations.
