The massive 300 foot wind turbine at Lake Erie Business Park
with an active Bald Eagle nest dangerously close by. 


With the Camp Perry wind turbine project off the table, BSBO and American Bird Conservancy are now bringing national attention to the project at the Lake Erie Business Park, separated from Camp Perry only by a woodlot - where there's an active Bald Eagle nest. The photo (also included in the press release linked to, below), clearly shows a Bald Eagle standing in the nest. 

READ PRESS RELEASE 

This 300 foot, 900 kw turbine is up and operating, another turbine is on the ground, their website indicates plans for a total of six, and because it is allegedly privately funded, this project, in the very heart of this globally important migratory bird stopover habitat, has been subject to NO WILDLIFE REVIEW WHATSOEVER. We need to change the laws and give regulatory oversight on these projects to the wildlife agencies. That is what we will be pressing for, and we will be calling on birders for their support to make this happen.

CAMP PERRY WIND TURBINE HALTED!

January 29, 2013: A victory for the birds!
Federal authorities in charge of the Camp Perry turbine, planned in a major migration route on the shores of Lake Erie, have withdrawn the project in the light of opposition by BSBO, ABC, and the thousands who signed our petition. Read The Official Press Release.
