Dr. Scott Petrie gives a powerful, key-word-dense presentation to a large crowd in Goderich, Ontario. Dr. Petrie is both the Executive Director of Long Point Waterfowl and Adjunct Professor at University of Western Ontario. Scott and his graduate students are presently studying various ecological aspects of waterfowl that stage and winter on the lower Great Lakes, including the implications of industrial wind turbine development. The threats associated with improperly placed industrial wind turbines and research being conducted by Long Point Waterfowl staff and students is discussed in this presentation.
