Audubon lays out plan to mitigate harm to birds in offshore wind development, February 25, 2024
Today the Regional Wildlife Science Collaborative for Offshore Wind (RWSC) released a historic research plan that sets priorities for all stakeholders to fully avoid, minimize, and mitigate any harms to wildlife caused by offshore wind energy development in much of the U.S. Atlantic Ocean.

“Birds and Wind Energy,” recorded presentation, March 9, 2023

European study shows that birds avoid offshore wind turbines, February 20, 2023
The main aim of the EOWDC Bird Collision Avoidance Study has been to improve our
understanding of seabird flight behaviour inside an offshore wind farm.

What are Audubon Society’s guidelines for responsible offshore wind development?
Our state has huge offshore wind energy potential. We want to make sure the industry grows in ways that protect birds and fight climate change.

“Wind energy can be a powerful factor in protecting the birds that we love.”
The revived Vineyard Wind Project will be a powerful force for reducing emissions, protecting both people and wildlife from the effects of climate change.
