It is being said that the human activities are contributing to the increasing night mares in animals. Research says that the increasing human activities are disturbing the animal sleep and are transforming them into nocturnal. The study involved about sixty-two animal species across the globe. According to the survey, when humans surrounded the mammals especially during the day, led to inactivity of the animals. On the hand, these animals were relatively more active during the night. It was also applicable in those animal species who were classified as nocturnal earlier.
Experts say, “such a shift might affect not only particular animals themselves – for example impacting their ability to navigate or find food – but also have numerous knock-on effects across other species.”
Kaitlyn Gaynor conveyed, “The findings echoed the past, noting it was only after the extinction of the dinosaurs that mammals started exploring the daylight. Humans are now this ubiquitous terrifying force on the planet, and we are driving all the other mammals back into the night-time.”
Kaitlyn Gaynor is the first author of this research on about sixty-two animal species. In addition to this, he is also a doctoral student at the University of Berkeley. According to Gaynor, the shift in the regular habits might show their effects on the inter-species interaction too.
According to Dr. Chris Carbone, “One of the key, interesting findings here is we are used to seeing human impacts on the environment regarding the loss of habitat or conversion of habitat or loss of space for those big, wide-ranging species – but this is talking about the loss of time.”
