Wind industry research to mitigate bat mortality rate at farms

Re: Bat Heaven is in turbine-free Mexico, Jim McPherson – Milford, Ontario
Cleaner air that is free of harmful and toxic pollution benefits both humans and wildlife. Canada’s wind energy industry is committed to respecting and protecting wildlife habitat and the environment and in fact is one of the only industries that voluntarily studies wildlife impacts. The industry partners with academic leaders, researchers, regulators and wildlife organizations to ensure development of wind energy is respectful and responsible.

The wind industry is actively engaged in leading-edge research to mitigate bat mortality at wind farms. To improve our understanding of how bats are impacted, the Bats and Wind Energy Cooperative (BWEC) was formed in 2003. BWEC is dedicated to improving fatality search methods and advancing our understanding of bat fatalities. BWEC is also actively investigating ways to mitigate impacts, such as acoustic deterrents and potential mitigation through changes in operations. For more information visit:
