A video from SPBT
for the wind farms in Thrace

Thrace is a typical example of an area with high biodiversity, however in this area wind turbines have not been sited proper since the beginning of 2000 and the impacts recorded to date are very serious.

Through this video, scientists, specialised in the environmental licensing of such projects (public authorities, private researchers and NGOs), describe the problems caused by the non-proper planning of these projects in biodiversity, the importance of cumulative impacts and how hard is to mitigate them in sensitive areas and they finally promote proper siting and compliance with environmental licensing procedures and legislation as the only means for the coexistence of wind turbines and birds in a wider area.
