Webinar on Improving Methods for Estimating Fatality of Birds and Bats at Wind Energy Facilities

Posted Sep 11 2012 3:00am
Date: 9/26/2012

10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. PT
This webinar will present results from a CalWEA-sponsored, California Energy Commission-funded study to increase the accuracy of methods for estimating the number of bird and bat fatalities associated with wind energy facilities, including an improved equation developed to adjust mortality observations. Presenters will review new data on the time-dependency of the probability of bird and bat scavenging and removal (carcass persistence) and detection by searchers (searcher proficiency), as well as assumptions and bias of four existing fatality estimation equations. Focusing primarily on small birds and bats, the study offers important insights and implications for experimental designs and field monitoring recommendations at wind facilities.
