Remove the light pollution at the Albert Bridge

Remove the light pollution at Albert Bridge in Belfast in order to preserve the famous starling murmuration there.

Why is this important?

Belfast is one of the best places in the UK and Ireland to watch a starling murmuration. But starlings are a red-listed species, meaning they are of high conservation concern having declined by two-thirds across the UK since the mid 1970s.

All government departments have a statutory duty to further biodiversity. The light pollution at Albert Bridge must be removed to ensure the starling murmurations can return.
