Turbine Collision Prevention
One of the top conservation concerns for Bald and Golden Eagles are negative interactions with wind energy developments and the associated electrical infrastructure. CTT is working with researchers who are aiming to reduce these negative interactions. The group has received support from organizations such as Arconic to fit Bald Eagles with our Evolution Series transmitters that are collecting data in Flight Mode three days a week. These data will allow these researchers to better understand how eagles use the Midwestern landscape. Such information is critical for guiding development and informing policy that will help protect this iconic species. Click here to view the Arconic Eagle nest webcams.
