Eagle Conservation Plan Guidance
Of all the nation's wildlife, eagles hold perhaps the most revered place in our natural history and culture. The United States has long imposed special protections for its bald and golden eagle populations. Now, as the nation seeks to increase its production of domestic energy, wind energy developers and wildlife agencies have recognized a need for specific guidance to help make wind energy facilities compatible with eagle conservation and the laws and regulations that protect eagles.
To meet this need, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) has developed the Eagle Conservation Plan Guidance. This document provides specific in-depth guidance for conserving bald and golden eagles in the course of siting, constructing, and operating wind energy facilities.
