In May 2013, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service began a training broadcast series to cover topics associated with wind energy and other relevant topics, such as the voluntary Land-based Wind Energy Guidelines. These broadcasts cover emerging issues and provide direction for wind energy facility planning, development, and operations. The Land-Based Wind Energy Guidelines are a tool for wind energy practitioners to minimize adverse effects of wind energy development and operation to wildlife and their habitats. The guidelines focus on collaboration of federal and state agencies, tribes, industry, and non-governmental organizations to develop environmentally responsible wind energy facilities.
