Niagara Regional Wind Exceeds Raptor Kills Threshold

Lowbanks, Haldimand County Ontario

Industrial wind facilities kill birds, bats and raptors. In Ontario part of the license requires the operator to count and submit a report to the Ministry about how many dead creatures they find. Niagara Wind exceeded the annual raptor mortality threshold in 2019.

“Based on the requirements of the MNRF guidelines (OMNR 2011) and the project’s Renewable Energy Approval (No. 4353-9HMP2R), all post-construction commitments pertaining to birds and bats have been met and no further bird or bat mortality monitoring is required for the Niagara Region Wind Farm. Any additional monitoring that may be
required as a result of the exceedance of the raptor mortality threshold at the NiagaraRegion Wind Farm will be determined in consultation with the MNRF.”

  1. Thanks so much for finding and sending this. I am not impressed with the numbers though! I have become so cynical that I do not trust them at all. Its all BS., It might hellp that the turbines are higher. We have noticed more vultures than ever this year, and our Eagle populations seem healthy, and the blue herons still exist in a rookery in near vicinity of the two DeVries turbines. (re bultures: there is a tree in our bush that the townies were visiting a few weeks ago to see the “Vulture Tree”. Fortunately the vultures have moved on for now, and the Eagles are back, Ravens are also a new thing around here. We have had a lot of rain: probably not a turbine thing either. 😥
