Is this project the referenced "Cell Cotton project"? What will you do to share your results so others can build on your work? What are you planning to do with the fluorescent cotton fiber, if this works out?

I imagine the nanobubbles could increase the productivity of aquaponics setups too, since sometimes oxygen availability can be a limiting factor for fish.

Does the wildlife seem to learn about vehicle speeds? Some birds seem to: https://phys.org/news/2013-08-reveals-birds-roads-limits.html I know reducing the speed reduces the impact a lot, and it seems like slowing down traffic could also help some by lowering the variation in vehicle speeds. If the people turn out to be unwilling to change their ways, maybe there is a way to make traffic easier for the animals to predict? I'm thinking of deer whistles as an example, though I don't think those worked for deer.
