On Tuesday, April 7, at 7 p.m. at the N.H. Audubon’s McLane Center, Carol Foss, PhD, Senior Advisor for Science and Policy at N.H. Audubon, will speak on the topic of “Wind Power and Wildlife: A New England Perspective.”
Wind power offers the promise of “green energy” without carbon emissions that contribute to climate change. As a renewable energy source, it can be a positive factor in protection of wildlife and the environment. However, wind turbines can also pose hazards to birds and other species. Foss will discuss the current state of knowledge about wind energy and how to balance the needs of native wildlife with our need for energy.
Foss has spent nearly 40 years working with N.H. Audubon and helping to protect N.H. wildlife through education, research, monitoring, management and policy.
