Below are recent NWCC and AWWI wind-wildlife publications, which are provided for free. You will find a summary of the history and accomplishments of the Wildlife Workgroup, a guide for studying wind-wildlife interactions, and a summary of what we know about bird and bat interactions with land-based wind power in North America.

Since its founding in 1998, the NWCC has produced a wide range of publications addressing issues that pertain to wind power. To access publications from prior issues addressed by the NWCC, please visit the prior activities pages.
