Wildlife Friendly Wind Turbine Constructed in England

From Treehugger:

The blanket “wind turbines are bird blenders” statement has been a long been the bane of many renewable energy advocates. Yet, like any industry, renewables operators have a responsibility to carefully manage and mitigate their impact on the natural world.

When the UK’s most prominent bird conservation charity, the Royal Society for Protection of Birds (RSPB), decided to install a 100m high wind turbine at their headquarters in Sandy, Bedfordshire, there was a predictable outcry from anti-wind lobbying groups. The charity, however, is well aware of the devastating impact that climate change will have on birds and other wildlife, so they were determined to press ahead with cutting their carbon emissions while mitigating any harm to the local environment.

 

For more information on the Wildlife Friendly Wind Turbine, check out this video from the RSPB:
