I am writing in support of concerns regarding the LEEDCo permit from the Ohio Power Citing Board. This letter essentially states HMANA’s opposition to wind power development in Lake Erie off the Ohio shore as proposed by LEEDo and transmits to you HMANA’s 2013 update to its policy statement on wind power development.
The Hawk Migration Association of North America’s official mission is to conserve raptor populations through the scientific study, enjoyment and appreciation of raptor migration. As a scientific, educational and conservation organization, HMANA collects data from hundreds of affiliated raptor monitoring sites throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico, and publishes a journal “Hawk Migration Studies” that includes data from participating hawk watches as well as articles on raptor conservation and other issues impacting raptors.
