American Bird Conservancy needs your help to protect millions of birds from the negative impacts of wind energy!
ABC has petitioned the U.S. Department of the Interior by developing regulations that will safeguard wildlife and reward responsible wind energy development. The more than 100-page petition for rulemaking, prepared by ABC and the Washington, D.C.-based public interest law firm of Meyer Glitzenstein & Crystal, calls for establishing a mandatory permitting system for the operation of wind energy projects and mitigation of their impacts on migratory birds.
Now we are asking the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to open a public comment period on our petition, as the first step in creating rules to protect birds. Please send your comment!
