Wind Wildlife Research Meeting XIII Proceedings

Hatchet Ridge, Pattern Energy

AWWI hosted an all-virtual biennial Wind Wildlife Research meeting on December 1-4, 2020. The Proceedings capture and summarize more than 80 on-demand presentations and panel discussions on current research pertaining to wind energy-related wildlife fatalities; habitat and behavioral impacts at the project level as well as cumulative and landscape-scale impacts; and avoidance, minimization, and mitigation strategies and technologies. As the window of opportunity to prevent the most catastrophic consequences of climate change narrows, these proceedings reflect discussions among stakeholders – scientists, wildlife agencies, wind energy developers, and conservation organizations – about how to balance the need to understand and mitigate wind energy impacts with the need to expedite responsible development of wind energy.
