NIGHT OWLS, ER, AN­I­MALS

Animal Scene - - ANIMALS ONLINE -

A con­sid­er­able num­ber of an­i­mals have be­come noc­tur­nal due to hu­man ac­tiv­ity, a study from the Univer­sity of Berke­ley found. Cov­er­ing 62 species from around the world, the study con­cluded that an­i­mals that live near hu­mans shifted their ac­tive hours from day to night. Fac­tors that may have con­trib­uted to this in­clude fear of hu­mans, pol­lu­tion, and food avail­abil­ity. This is a wakeup call for hu­mans to be more con­sid­er­ate of their furry friends and the en­vi­ron­ment we all share.
