Development of a Collision Risk Model

Leslie New 1The US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), in conjunction with the US Geological Survey and Washington State University, have developed a statistical model that enables a wind facility to predict its expected number of bird fatalities in advance of construction. Avian fatalities at wind facilities are a serious consideration for both wildlife and wind facility managers. Many local, regional and international laws protect various bird species, making an understanding of a facility’s potential impact invaluable for planning and conservation purposes.
