Conference on Wind energy and Wildlife impacts
Gareth Bradbury (Senior Consultant, WWT Consulting) and Eileen Rees (Head of UK Waterbird Conservation, WWT) are currently attending the Conference on Wind energy and Wildlife impacts being held in Berlin.
The conference serves as a forum for sharing knowledge at an international level, and this year’s sessions focus on the methods used to assess and mitigate the impacts of wind energy on wildlife.
In line with the subject, WWT Consulting has recently developed a new GIS tool to map sensitivity of seabirds to the wind farm impacts of collision and displacement in English territorial waters, known as SeaMaST (Seabird Mapping and Sensitivity Tool).
For more information on the project, please follow this link.
We look forward to learning more on the latest findings on renewable energy and wildlife impacts when Gareth returns next week.
