Anthropogenic light can have adverse effects on species and ecosystems, effects that are numerous and challenging to anticipate due to their high variability and complexity. In this study our objective was to investigate the feasibility of utilising environmental lighting zones for the management of aquatic Natura 2000 conservation areas. The aim of the Natura 2000 network is to ensure the long-term survival of Europe's most valuable and threatened species and habitats. Maintaining a favourable conservation status and sustainable management of these habitats is of utmost importance, necessitating the avoidance of negative impacts of human activities, including anthropogenic light. Our preliminary findings indicate that employing a relatively high number of environmental lighting zones intervals is essential for effective implementation of mitigation measures. This approach facilitates the identification of protected areas experiencing the highest levels of light emissions, aiding in targeted conservation efforts.
