Birds die because of wind turbines

Hundreds of birds are killed by wind turbines in Brandenburg, Germany.

According to statistics from the National Observatory for the Protection of Birds*, just in Brandenburg 781 birds have been killed by collisions with wind turbines over the past decade.

The actual number of birds killed by wind turbines is obviously much higher.
