AWWI has released an updated Issue Brief on Eagle Conservation, Policy, and Wind Energy. The update explains some of the regulations related to eagle conservation and wind energy development, including the US Fish and Wildlife Service’s 2009 Eagle Rule and the provisions laid out in the recent extension of permits from 5 to (up to) 30 years.
The Issue Brief also covers the purpose of the Service’s Eagle Conservation Plan Guidance, intended to help wind developers maintain compliance with permits for eagle take under the 2009 rule.
