Dr Gibson is the Principal Specialist in Marine at Natural England and a Natural History Author and photographer. This is likely to be a top talk - well worth coming! You know you wanted to find out more about those wind farms, they're not just a wind indicator for sailors!
Offshore wind energy is seen as a crucial part of the country's renewable energy mix. But it doesn't come without environmental concerns, with potential effects upon seabirds, fish and valued landscapes. This talk will look at those environmental effects and the steps that the industry, regulators and nature conservation advisers have taken to ensure the sustainable development of offshore wind projects.
