Meeting Proceedings

The Proceedings of the Wind Wildlife Research Meeting capture and summarize the work of nearly 100 presenters on a wide array of wind-wildlife topics being addressed by industry, policy-makers, conservation groups, and scientists. Major focus areas include technologies for detecting and deterring wildlife, assessing risk to eagles, and assessing mechanisms to avoid and minimize impacts on bats.

The new research reveals an emphasis on technology and innovation. This trend is one of several indications of how far research has come since the National Wind Coordinating Collaborative convened the first Wind Wildlife Research Meeting in 1994, and sets the state for wind-wildlife solutions in 2015 and beyond. The Proceedings mark 20 years of progress in wind/wildlife research.
