Renewable Energies and Wildlife
"An alternative energy company is constructing a wind energy facility in north-central Arizona. To date, approximately 30 wind turbines have been constructed. Overall the project site will include 10,240 acres. There are concerns that such a large scale wind farm will affect local pronghorn populations’ movement patterns, fawning areas, and habitat. The primary purpose of this investigation is to determine how the behavioral patterns of free-ranging pronghorn are affected by wind energy development and operation".
