An independent hearing on the potential harmful effects of offshore wind farms on whales, dolphins, fisheries and the New Jersey economy will be held next week in Trenton.

The New Jersey Senate Republicans have announced plans to conduct an independent hearing on the recent surge of whale and dolphin deaths along the Jersey Shore, as well as the potential links to wind farms that are currently being developed in the area. The virtual hearing will be held on Wednesday, May 3, and will be livestreamed on Facebook Live.

Senator Anthony M. Bucco will serve as Chair for the hearing and will be joined by Senators Vince Polistina, Michael Testa, and Declan O’Scanlon, along with invited guests including scientists, advocacy groups, local officials, and impacted businesses.

The hearing will delve into the potential connection between the increase in whale and dolphin deaths and the development of wind farms in the area, which has been a concern for many residents and environmental groups. The hearing will be held at 9:45 a.m. on Wednesday, May 3, and will be accessible to the public and press via Facebook Live from the New Jersey Senate Republicans’ Facebook page, with no need for a Facebook account to watch.
