Today, thanks to the wind industry, we now have California condors that will forever be trapped in small regions near their feeding stations and the highly endangered whooping crane population is rapidly declining. Sadly this migrating population is on its last legs because they will not be able to coexist with the thousands of wind turbines being built along their migration route. For decades prior to 2006 or before the wind turbine invasion, whooping crane numbers had increased about 4 percent per year. But since 2006 the average mortality for this period has been about 41 cranes or close to 20 percent per year. Most importantly has been NO NET GAIN in numbers for this highly endangered species.
