New data on bird collision with wind turbines published
Researchers at BioConsult SH, ARSU, IfAÖ and University of Bielefeld have published a study on the effects of wind turbines on birds and how to lower the risk of collision. The question of whether protected bird species are threatened by wind turbines is important when granting permission for wind parks. For the first time, scientists looked at the actual number of collisions, finding that fewer birds of prey were killed by wind turbines than previously estimated. Most of the birds killed belonged to non-endangered species.
