Tell your elected officials that you want to see wind power developed in a way that is good for birds.
Some of America's most iconic birds are at risk from poorly-planned wind farms. You can change this.
Wind power can be an important energy source, but it needs to be done right. Wind farms kill birds including Golden Eagles, songbirds, and endangered species such as the Whooping Crane through collisions, and also harm the habitat of other birds such as sage-grouse.
By 2030, there will be more than 100,000 wind turbines in the U.S., and these are expected to kill at least one million birds each year—probably significantly more.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Wind power can be bird-smart if developed appropriately, but industry will not do this unless mandated.
You can send a message to your elected officials asking them to require mandatory, bird-smart standards for the wind industry. Just use the form below. It's easy!
