Dear EarthTalk: How is it that migrating birds are being negatively affected by oil extraction in Canada’s Boreal forest? – Jennifer Chase, Fort Lauderdale,…
After the threat of a lawsuit from conservation groups, the U.S. National Guard backs down, for now at least, on a one-turbine wind power project.
Birders – and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service – say an Air National Guard base wind turbine in a bird-rich spot along Lake Erie could be disastrous.
Taller wind turbines – and those in California – could present a greater risk to birds, according to a new study.
An Obama administration decision to allow 30-year permits that allow wind farms to kill limited numbers of bald and golden eagles draws outrage from Audubon.
Siting has to be done with care, but Maine Audubon says there are areas where wind power can be developed with minimal wildlife impact.
In a first, the Obama administration gets a criminal conviction of a wind power company for failing to protect golden eagles and other birds.
The real threat to birds? It’s not wind turbines, according to a new study out of Canada that calls into question some often-cited mortality figures.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is pressing a California wind power plant operator to save golden eagles to make up for the turbines’ impacts.
A new study by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service researchers finds eagle fatalities related to wind farms possibly may be higher then originally thought.
Conservatives seize on a new bird-fatality estimate for wind power, but a closer look suggests it might be a lot of hot air.
