Wind Alert for Great Lakes States
Wind Alert for Great Lakes States The Great Lakes are home to one of the world’s greatest bird migration routes, but wind developers plan to build hundreds of dangerous turbines either in the Great Lakes or along their shores that could be disastrous for birds. Wind turbines are an essential source of clean energy, but they need to be responsibly located—not placed in the path of countless migratory birds. American Bird Conservancy Great Lakes Action Alert: If you live in the Great Lakes region, please send a letter to decision makers in OH, PA, NY, MI, IL, IN, WI, and MN. You can ask your governor and state wildlife officials to protect birds—and keep the Great Lakes and their shorelines free of large-scale wind energy development. Click on photo above for link.

Bird Smart Wind Energy
The American Bird Conservancy Bird-Smart Wind Energy Program's primary goal is to protect U.S. native birds from the rapidly growing threat of poorly sited and managed wind turbines. In a three-part series, Michael Hutchins, Director of ABC's Bird-Smart Wind Energy Campaign, answers some of the more frequently asked questions about threats: How does wind energy threaten birds? What bird species are most threatened? How does the threat of wind energy compare to that of climate change? You can view this series of FAQs at: https://abcbirds.org/support-bird-smart-wind-energy-solutions/ or click on photo above.
Support Bird-friendly Buildings Legislation
Building collisions kill millions of bird each year, and many of these needless deaths can be prevented. A new bill would promote bird-friendly materials and design features at federal buildings.
