POLL: Should the wind turbine farm project in Eilot be stopped?


The region in Israel is a bottleneck for passing from Europe and Asia to Africa. Each spring half a billion birds pass through this region on the return journey to their breeding grounds in Europe and Asia.

Many of these birds are and most face dwindling populations due to habitat loss, illegal hunting, poisoning and now wind turbines.

When flying the birds cannot see the massive blades of the wind turbines and each year thousands of birds are killed by wind turbines, eagles, kites and buzzards being especially hard hit.

Now a private company is planning to build a series of massive wind turbines in the middle of the world’s busiest route.

They have the potential to kill millions of birds and even wipe out species like the Levant Sparrowhawk whose entire population moves through this area every spring. This madness needs to be stopped NOW!
