Species Conservation

NamPower/NNF Strategic Partnership

Project progress report (May 2016)

22 Sep 2016

A conservation-industry partnership seeks win-win solutions to wildlife and power line interactions.

The project objectives are to monitor, report and manage power line/wildlife interactions; conduct research and incorporate bird/wildlife mitigation into existing power line networks, and into the planning of future networks; promote awareness and communication about the risks that power lines pose to wildlife, and wildlife to the power supply; and develop an over-arching, easily accessible environmental information service to assist with achieving the above objectives.

 

The above objectives are directly related to a dynamic action plan, developed and updated regularly in consultation with stakeholders.

 

Much has been achieved over the past eight years.
