Briefs: USGS talk on wind power and wildlife

U.S. Geological Survey research statistician Manuela Huso will give a talk in Menlo Park on Thursday, July 26, about wildlife fatalities from wind power farms, and what is being done about it.

The talk starts at 7 p.m. in conference room A, Building 3, on the U.S. Geological Survey campus at 345 Middlefield Road in Menlo Park.

As wind energy development rolls forward, the environmental destruction from the turbines, including significant numbers of dead birds and other animals, has caused concern. Ms. Huso will talk about new tools scientists are developing to monitor and reduce wildlife fatalities.
