FWS unveils new vision for wind-energy siting and wildlife
Advisory committee issues draft recommendations for wind-energy siting
Washington (04/14/2010) -
“Wind energy is an important part of our clean energy future, but for it to be truly successful, we need thoughtful long-term planning that takes wildlife and habitat conservation into consideration. These draft guidelines will go a long way toward ensuring that future wind energy development is compatible with birds, bats and other wildlife.
“This two-year-long endeavor shows that when conservation groups, industry and other stakeholders work together, we can reach a solution that works for everyone, while still protecting our nation’s wildlife and natural treasures.
“Defenders of Wildlife urges Interior Secretary Salazar to adopt the draft recommendations and to work to ensure that wind energy is done right for wildlife.”
