Raptors and Energy Development
Saturday, 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.).
