The Price of Power

Today our colleagues at the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds sent us a very comprehensive article on global avian electrocution issues.

Please check out the following article, The Price of Power, written by James Lowen. This article was originally published in the World Bird Watch Magazine, a publication of Birdlife International.

The headline reads:

“A ubiquitous part of modern life, electricity and the infrastructure that provides it, have devastating effects on several bird species. James Lowen investigates the long-running campaign that several European BirdLife Partners have been involved in to try and mitigate this serious problem.”

We hope you find this article informative and thank the team at the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds for sending it our way.
