“Wind energy development zones, if done right, could be helpful to both birds and wind energy development. Siting is the most important step in make wind energy bird-smart, and American Bird Conservancy (ABC) is developing a map of the areas where wind energy would be most risky to birds. ABC looks forward to participating in this rulemaking, to help ensure the BLM’s wind energy zones protect birds while encouraging well-sited wind energy development,” said Kelly Fuller, American Bird Conservancy’s Wind Campaign Coordinator.
BLM’s Federal Register Notice is available here and the agency is accepting public comments and suggestions about the proposed rulemaking until
American Bird Conservancy supports wind power when it is bird-smart.
American Bird Conservancy recently petitioned the Department of the Interior to create mandatory regulations to protect migratory birds at wind energy facilities. See full press release here.
