As conservationists we want clean renewable power like wind power but we also want to protect our raptors and other wild birds.
Many conservation groups, including the Audubon Society, are helping to make wind farms safe for birds so that we can take advantage of the wind power without harming birds. As you can see from this video, raptors are one of the largest group of birds that are in danger. Wind farm design has come a long way recently and with constant vigilance we can make this work to the advantage of everyone.
We have gotten some support by the California Energy Commission who approved the California Guidelines for Reducing Impacts to Birds and Bats from Wind Energy Development
