Bat mortality at wind turbines … an increasingly urgent study.

With the current and planned growth of industrial wind turbines destined to invade the environment once friendly to bats, understanding bat kills is an increasingly important issue to resolve.  Bats are a vital element in the cycle of life on this plant yet they, as other creatures are finding their habitat turned into a danger zone by the intrusion of these “747” size rotating devices.

Thanks to John Terry for pointing us to Wisconsin Public Television, which has an excellent video to help better understand the issue.
