Another massacre comes to light


Windfarm acting as a population sink for an endangered species


 

SPAIN: 40 to 60 great bustards killed by the power lines of the Villasilos windfarm.

This compares to a previously estimated population of 260 individuals, immatures included, for the whole province of Burgos. The Villasilos area being the principal habitat in the province for these heavy, 10-14 kilo birds, where most of them show up at one time or another, the windfarm is actually acting as an ecological trap, a population sink for this endangered species. This is how “carefully” the wind industry places its windfarms. – STEI
