In May 2014 South Shore Conservancy and CCSAGE submitted comments on the wpd reports for the White Pines wind project. We are posting these comments on our website to show the lack of concern to the most vulnerable of the species that use the Prince Edward County south shore unique habitat.
These species at risk include Golden Eagles, Peregrine Falcons, the Little Brown Bat, the Northern Long Eared Bats, Loggerhead Shrike, Cerulean warblers, Night hawks, Blanding’s Turtles and many others. Four leafed milkweed which is particularly rare and is only found in Prince Edward County, Ogden’s pond weed, Pale bellied frost lichen, black tern, swamp rose mallow, eastern ribbon snake, milksnake, northern map turtle, snapping turtle are in the project study area.
The Prince Edward County south shore is a precious and vulnerable area that needs conservation and protection.
