How will turbines impact wildlife like hawks, eagles, and vultures?

While some birds do occasionally collide with turbine blades, modern wind farms are far less harmful to birds than buildings, communication towers, power lines, and vehicles. In fact, wind turbines account for only a small fraction of all human-related bird deaths and cause fewer bird fatalities than other sources of energy. To ensure that any project we build has a minimal impact on birds, Apex’s team of environmental biologists conducts several wildlife studies of a project area, in consultation with state and federal wildlife agencies. These studies inform the project’s design to protect nearby birds and other wildlife.
