New Fact Sheet on Greater Sage-Grouse
New in 2017! This fact sheet provides an overview of current knowledge on greater sage-grouse ecology, status, conservation challenges, and current conservation efforts, and presents a summary of recent research findings on the interactions between sage-grouse and wind energy development.
11th Wind Wildlife Research Meeting a Record-Setting Success
The meeting was packed with research offering progress and solutions that balance both wind energy development and wildlife conservation.
Summary of Wind-Wildlife Interactions
Updated for 2017! AWWI's “Wind Turbine Interactions with Wildlife and their Habitats” summarizes publicly available information about the adverse impacts of land-based wind power on wildlife in North America and the status of our knowledge regarding how to avoid or minimize these impacts.
Marking 22 Years of Progress in Wind/Wildlife Research
What are the current trends in wind/wildlife research? How far has the science come since NWCC convened its first research meeting in 1994? Wind Wildlife Research Meetings tell the story.
