Audubon Priority Bird Areas and Responsible Wind Development

Audubon Society

Audubon strongly supports properly-sited wind power as a clean alternative energy source that reduces the threat of global warming. Wind power facilities should be planned, sited and operated to minimize negative impacts on bird and wildlife populations.

This layer shows important bird areas in Wyoming, Montana, and parts of the surrounding states. These are sensitive areas which should be avoided when planning the siting and development of energy infrastructure. See the layer content and the website linked above for more information.
