Right Whales and Offshore Wind – A Case Study for Collaboration

March 1, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

The Offshore Wind Accelerator Project (OWAP) and the National Wildlife Federation hosted a webinar to examine the scientific underpinnings of North Atlantic right whale conservation; identify how this challenge might impact offshore wind development; and describe the details and impact of recently agreed-upon conservation measures that present a solution.

In a first-of-its-kind collaboration, a coalition of leading environmental organizations and three offshore wind developers has agreed to a series of voluntary measures that will protect critically endangered North Atlantic right whales while helping to expedite responsible offshore wind development in the Mid-Atlantic. The companies and NGOs have drafted a set of protective measures that these developers will voluntarily implement over the next four years in areas designated by the administration as Mid-Atlantic Wind Energy Areas (WEAs), which stretch from New Jersey to Virginia.

Presenters include:

  • Justin Allegro, National Wildlife Federation
  • Scott Kraus, New England Aquarium
  • Michael Jasny, NRDC
  • Aileen Kenney, DeepWater Wind
  • Tricia Jedele, CLF
