Coastal Mountains Land Trust Series: Offshore Wind Energy and Wildlife—What’s happening along the East Coast and in Maine
Thursday, February 11, 2021 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
The Camden Public Library and the Coastal Mountains Land Trust welcome Dr. Wing Goodale for a free online presentation via Zoom. Goodale will provide an overview of the offshore wind energy projects on the East Coast of the US; provide an update on activities in Maine; discuss how wildlife (birds and bats in particular) are expected to respond to offshore wind turbines; and discuss what we know about bird movement in the Gulf of Maine. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register and request a link to attend.
Goodale is the Senior Science Director at Biodiversity Research Institute (BRI), and adjunct research faculty at the University of Maine. Goodale has a BA in biology from Colorado College, an MPhil in human ecology from College of the Atlantic, and a Ph.D. in environmental conservation from UMass Amherst. Goodale was a National Science Foundation IGERT fellow in the UMass Offshore Wind Energy Program and is a Switzer Environmental Fellow. Goodale’s research is focused on the interaction of wildlife with offshore wind energy. Goodale has in-depth knowledge of the cumulative effects, offshore wind farm wildlife literature, and environmental assessments.
