tidal schemes

Posted by Sara King BSc (Hons) AIEEM on 13/12/2012

One of the main sources of this renewable energy will be from wind turbines, and extensive research has been undertaken to assess the impacts of wind farms on wildlife, particularly bird species. Another source of renewable energy currently under development is wave and tidal energy. Awareness of impacts on seabirds as a result of these schemes are not so widely publicised, and limited research has been undertaken to assess the impacts of these schemes of the UK’s seabird populations.
