PRESS RELEASE                                                                                        29 March 2011

Windfarms threaten many bird species with extinction 

Save the Eagles International (STEI) wishes to warn the international community about the threat that windfarms and their power lines represent for biodiversity. Unlike cars, buildings, and domestic cats, wind turbine blades and high tension lines often kill protected or endangered birds like eagles, cranes, storks, etc. Cumulatively and over the long term, 3.5 million wind turbines to be installed worldwide will cause the extinction of many bird species, some of them emblematic.

STEI’s president, Mark Duchamp, objects to the wind industry comparing bird mortality at windfarms to that, larger, from other causes related to human activities. These other threats have already reduced bird populations worldwide, he said, and are continuing to do so. “But mortality caused by windfarms and their power lines is new and additional", he adds, "and like the proverbial last drop that spills the glass, its effects will be upsetting. To wit the Tasmanian Wedge-tailed Eagle, which has been condemned to extinction by the construction of 7 windfarms in its habitat (1).

Another important difference, says Duchamp, is that the other threats can’t be easily stopped, whereas poorly-sited windfarm projects can. The Spanish Ornithological Society (SEO/Birdlife) recommended this month that windfarms no longer be built in natural areas, but in urban and industrial areas instead (2).


One week later, SEO/Birdlife revealed that bird mortality caused by windfarms and power lines was much higher than previously thought. For the Spanish region of Castilla La Mancha, they estimate it to be "1.3 million birds a year, many of them in danger of extinction like the Imperial Eagle, the Bonelli´s Eagle or the Lesser Kestrel”. And they added: “(this is) a considerable number which proves that windfarms have a great capacity for killing birds”. (3)

"This is what I have been claiming for 9 years", says Duchamp, "but only this month did SEO recognize the danger. During all that time I have been treated as a heretic, and was banned from ornithology forums where my whistle-blowing was causing discomfort in the profession.”  The French naturalist, who lives in Spain, has been vindicated at last. He praises the American Bird Conservancy, Birdlife Bulgaria, and SEO for their firm stand against improperly sited windfarms, but laments that it will take more years before the most prominent bird societies do likewise. Conflicts of interests are at the root of the problem, he says.

STEI warns that, if we are to save our emblematic bird species from this new threat, it is urgent to impose a moratorium on windfarm construction and to call for a really independent commission to investigate the whole windfarm matter, starting with the effectiveness of this intermittent, unreliable, and ruinous form of energy.

Duchamp founded Save the Eagles International in 2009, to raise awareness and to publish inconvenient bird mortality statistics that most bird societies fail to make available to the public. He has launched today the STEI website where these numbers and their sources can be found:              


(1) - Wind farms: suspicious error by consultant condemns Tasmanian eagle to extinction.   

(2) - SEO Birdlife: “ Castilla-La Mancha "debe abandonar el viejo modelo de grandes centrales de generación eléctrica situadas en plena naturaleza y alejadas de los puntos de consumo y fomentar la generación eléctrica en suelo urbano e industrial".
Translation: “Castilla-La Mancha “must abandon the old model of large power plants located in natural habitats, far away from where the energy is consumed, and promote electrical generation in urban and industrial zones.”  

(3) - SEO Birdlife: “1,3 millones de aves al año… un número considerable con el que se demuestra que los parques eólicos tienen «una gran capacidad para matar aves».
“1.3 millon birds a year… a considerable number which proves that windfarms have a great capacity for killing birds ”

Man sollte immer auf alte Männer hören  

  • Es gibt kein Verbrechen, keinen Kniff, keinen Trick, keinen Schwindel, kein Laster, das nicht von Geheimhaltung lebt. Bringt diese Heimlichkeiten ans Tageslicht, beschreibt sie, macht sie vor aller Augen lächerlich, und früher oder später wird die öffentliche Meinung sie hinwegfegen. Bekanntmachung allein genügt vielleicht nicht; aber es ist das einzige Mittel, ohne das alle anderen versagen.

    Josef Pulitzer (1847 - 1911)

  • „Zuerst ignorieren sie dich,
    dann lachen sie über dich,
    dann bekämpfen sie dich und dann gewinnst du.“
    Mahatma Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

  • Wilhelm Busch (1832 - 1908)Aus der Mühle schaut der Müller, Der so gerne mahlen will.
    Stiller wird der Wind und stiller, Und die Mühle stehet still.
    So gehts immer, wie ich finde,
    Rief der Müller voller Zorn.
    Hat man Korn, so fehlts am Winde, Hat man Wind, so fehlt das Korn.

    Wilhelm Busch (1832 - 1908)





„Alternative Energiegewinnung ist unsinnig, wenn sie genau das zerstört, was man eigentlich durch sie bewahren will: Die Natur“

Reinhold Messner, 2002

"Der Ausbau regenerativer Energien kommt vor Umweltschutz"

Winfried Kretschmann, grüner Ministerpräsident von Baden-Württemberg, auf der Verbandsversammlung des Gemeindetages in BW

"Ihr müsst schon sehr gute Argumente liefern, wenn wir sie nicht bei euch vor die Haustür setzen sollen. Dann bauen wir sie woanders hin. Aber bauen werden wir sie. Warum? Weil das Gemeinwohl es gebietet."

Winfried Kretschmann (MP Baden-Württemberg) über seine Windwahnphantasien

"Eines Tages wird der Mensch den Lärm genauso bekämpfen müssen wie Cholera und Pest."

Robert Koch (1843-1910)

"Ich bin für Naturschutz und Energiewende verantwortlich und kann deshalb klar sagen, dass die Energiewende nicht am Naturschutz scheitern wird."

Robert Habeck, Energiewendeminister S-H am 20.08.2012 im WELT-Interview

"Man has the fundamental right to freedom, equality and adequate conditions of life, in an environment of a quality that permits a life of dignity and well-being, and he bears a solemn responsibility to protect and improve the environment for present and future generations."

Declaration of the UN Conference on the Human Environment

"Früher war Energiearmut ein Randphänomen, mittlerweile ist es ein Alltagsproblem."

Volker Hatje, Elmshorner Stadtrat

For us, the world was full of beauty; for the other, it was a place to be endured until he went to another world. But we were wise. We knew that man's heart, away from nature, becomes hard.

Chief Luther Standing Bear (1868-1939)
