Research by PhD Student Shows Promise for Coexistence of Eagles and Wind Turbines

FWCB Doctoral Candidate Jason Tack collaborated with the University of Waterloo to conduct research on the strategic placement of wind turbines and the impact it would have on birds. They analyzed location of golden eagle nesting sites alongside high potential areas for wind turbine placement. Plotting these two variables against each other resulted in the successful identification of areas out of the way of nesting sites but with promise for turbine development. This finding leaves hope that future turbine placement can be carried out while reducing avian mortality.
