National Audubon Society Sues California County to Improve Bird Protections in Controversial Wind Energy Project
“Altamont Pass has been a black eye on the entire wind industry since its construction.”
Audubon taps into people’s love of birds to protect them from climate change.
Thanks to major advances in technology, renewable energy has become increasingly more affordable and obtainable for both businesses and individual homes. That’s good news for people and birds, since adopting renewable energy is critical to reducing pollution, lowering global temperatures, and preserving the places that birds need to survive.
That’s why Audubon strongly supports renewable energy—including solar, wind, and geothermal power—that is properly sited in ways that avoid, minimize, and mitigate negative impacts on birds and other wildlife. We also advocate that Congress and wildlife agencies should ensure strong enforcement of laws that protect birds and wildlife, like the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
