ESA Notice Letter Sent Regarding The Proposed Highland Wind Project

Last Friday, a coalition of conservation organizations and concerned citizens sent a notice letter to Highland New Wind Development and the Highland County Board of Supervisors notifying both entities that the construction and operation of the proposed wind project in Highland County, Virginia is virtually certain to kill and/or injure federally endangered Indiana bats and Virginia big-eared bats in the absence of an incidental take permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
