Workshop Powerpoint Presentations on Wind Turbines


The Sea Duck Joint Venture sponsored the Second North American Sea Duck Conference that was held on November 7-11, 2005, at the Loews Annapolis Hotel in Annapolis, Maryland. This international conference was hosted by USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center (PWRC) and sponsored by various other government and private organizations, including the Atlantic Coast Joint Venture and the Atlantic Flyway Council. Approximately 200 scientists and managers attended the conference and 9 countries were represented. This meeting provided a forum to exchange information about sea duck biology and management. The conference provided a stimulating environment, in which scientists expanded their scientific vision in hopes of a better understanding and conservation of sea ducks. All research disciplines dealing with sea ducks were discussed in 57 oral and 48 poster presentations. Workshops were conducted on topics including offshore wind farms, contaminants/diseases, satellite telemetry, and seaduck harvest (sport and subsistence). Tours available for the conference included Baltimore Inner Harbor (Aquarium), Historic Annapolis ( Naval Academy), and the PWRC sea duck colony.
