Wind Wildlife Research Meeting VIII

The 8th Wind Wildlife Research Meeting was held October 19 – 21, 2010, in Lakewood, CO.


The biennial Wind Wildlife Research Meeting provides an internationally recognized forum for researchers and stakeholders to share and engage on the latest science focused on better understanding the risk of wind energy to wildlife and developing solutions to avoid, minimize, and offset impacts. The meeting also brings together thought leaders to discuss priority topics and themes in the wind-wildlife arena.
