Bad decision on wind farms, eagles  

Credit:  Bellevue Reporter | Dec. 27, 2013 | www.bellevuereporter.com ~~

Many Eastside Audubon members were shocked and dismayed to learn of the U.S. Department of Interior’s plan to allow 30-year permits for killing Bald and Golden Eagles at wind farms.

We know wind energy is a key part of our national effort to combat climate change. But Eastside Audubon believes we must carefully site and manage those facilities to reduce impacts to birds and other wildlife. This 30-year permit locks us into a path that will result in unnecessarily large numbers of dead eagles. How can the Interior Department sanction the needless killing of our national symbol, the Bald Eagle?

On behalf of the Eastside Audubon chapter of the National Audubon Society, we urge Interior Secretary Sally Jewell to reverse this decision and work with conservation groups and the wind industry to come up with a better solution – one that promotes wind energy and minimizes collateral damage to our Bald and Golden Eagle populations.

Andrew McCormick, president of the Eastside Audubon Society
