BRI in the News

BRI news stories have appeared in many regional, national, and international news outlets. These stories help promote awareness of our work, but also promote the general issues of conservation biology and the need to continue research in wildlife health and its implications to human health.

BRI's researchers are available to talk to journalists and provide expert information on both their work and the broader topics of their expertise.

BRI Publishes New Research on Seabirds and Offshore Wind Energy Development


BRI research on seabirds and offshore wind energy development was recently published in the journal Environmental Research Letters. The article, Assessing the cumulative adverse effects of offshore wind energy development on seabird foraging guilds along the East Coast of the United States, calculates cumulative exposure of seabirds to areas suitable for offshore wind farms, and quantifies how different wind farm siting scenerios could expose seven seabird foraging guilds. The paper identifies foraging guilds most likely to be cumulatively exposed, and proposes an approach for siting and mitigation that may reduce exposure for all guilds. Read the full article here.
