Description

It's a chilly winter evening. A northern gannet lets out a loud graaak. Swiftly and carefully, a scientist scoops the bird off the surface of the water into a net so that a team of experts can implant a high-tech tag. Scientists will track this seabird--and many others--to learn its movement patterns over the following years. Find out how scientists are working to ensure clean, renewable offshore wind power won't spell disaster for the millions of seabirds that play a critical role in the ocean food web.

display_description Shares information on how scientists are using implants in sea birds to study the impact wind farms have on the birds. Wind farms along the Atlantic coastline provide sources of clean energy but are dangerous to migrating seabirds. Find out how scientists are working to ensure that the windmills won't spell disaster for the millions of seabirds that play a critical role in the ocean food web. As they discover more about the birds' migratory paths, they can establish a database with their locations, food sources, and populations, in order to help with planning locations for wind farms.
