October 09, 2007
There are close to 300 windmills in Kutch area of Gujarat, India. Bird watchers attribute the decline in number of vultures found in this area (from 70 to 15) to the windmills.
Dr Vibhu Prakash, Principal Scientist, Bombay Natural History Society (BNHS) and in charge of the vulture breeding programme says, “Windmills do create problems for birds, especially for large birds like the raptors. They can get sucked into the windmills
and get injured. "
