Defining Directions for Wind-Wildlife Science
Many key questions about the effects of wind energy development on
wildlife must be answered by focused scientific research. One of AWWI’s
goals is to support research that has immediate and practical
application in the siting of wind energy projects while reducing impacts
to key wildlife species and their habitats.
Our National Wind-Wildlife Research Plan will define research
priorities that best accomplish this objective in the next three to five
years. Priorities will be developed by Dr. Taber Allison, AWWI’s
Director of Research and Evaluation, with the active support of
scientists and other technical experts.
