Wildlife has no chance against turbine

September 4, 2012

The mixed alarm and sadness Fairhaven residents feel over the effects of the new turbines on local wildlife are downplayed in the South Coast Today article (8/29/12)”Dead birds, bats found near turbines worry Windwise” by Ariel Wittenberg.
Frequent trips back and forth on the bike path, which passes between the two turbines, gives birders and outdoor enthusiasts regular glimpses of the downed bats and birds.
