Take Action to Protect Wildlife from Poorly Sited Wind Projects
The American Bird Conservancy organized a petition to the new Secretary of Interior Sally Jewell asking her to protect bald and golden eagles from poorly sited wind energy projects. At issue is the Department of Interior's consideration of issuing 30-year eagle "take" permits that would make it difficult for wildlife officials and scientists to protect these species. If we are going to build a sustainable clean energy future, we cannot give industry a free pass to destroy what we are trying to protect.
