Raptors and Energy
September 25, 2010
8:00 am – 3:20 pm
The total world consumption of marketed energy is
predicted to expand by over 50% by 2025. The increasing demand for
energy will result in more land being used for the exploration and
extraction of petroleum, natural gas, coal, and uranium. There will
also be an increase in the number and type of renewable energy sources
such as wind, solar, and tidal. The development of these resources can
result in direct, indirect and cumulative impacts to raptors.
The purpose of this session is to address energy impacts
to raptors including power line electrocutions, power line collisions
and wind turbine collisions. Raptor disturbance and nest management
will also be addressed.
The session will occur on Saturday 25 September and is
being organized by Rick Harness (EDM International, Inc.).
