Monitoring for Bird Collisions at a Windfarm in Emmonak, AK

ABR, Inc. designed and implemented a program to monitor a windfarm in a remote Alaskan village for bird collisions. We trained locally hired technicians to conduct searches of the windfarm for downed birds. We also conducted carcass persistence and detection trials with the assistance of local technicians to estimate scavenger and observer bias in models of bird collision rates.

ABR's triple bottom line: "Environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and economic viability"
