How to help golden eagle populations weather wind energy growth

“We are taking basic information about golden eagle ecology in the Anthropocene and developing it into predictive frameworks for how to protect them,” says Eric Lonsdorf, Emory assistant professor of environmental science (Image: Emory University)“We are taking basic information about golden eagle ecology in the Anthropocene and developing it into predictive frameworks for how to protect them,” says Eric Lonsdorf, Emory assistant professor of environmental science (Image: Emory University)

Analyzing ways to help golden eagle populations weather wind-energy growth

Wind energy is a major component of the U.S. clean-energy goals. Already one of the fastest growing and lowest-cost sources of electricity in the country, it is poised for even more rapid growth, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

Wind power, however, does not come without tradeoffs, including some negative impacts on wildlife. Throughout the United States, for example, it’s been estimated that as many as three golden eagles per wind farm are killed each year by wind turbines. “Renewable energy sources, including wind energy, are critical for us to achieve a net-zero emissions future,” says Eric Lonsdorf, assistant professor of environmental sciences at Emory University. “We need to address conflicts between renewable energy and... ...
