The South Shore Conservancy congratulates the Prince Edward County Field Naturalists (PECFN) for their win on Blanding’s Turtles. The Appeal Court agrees with PECFN that a wind project at Ostrander Point in Prince Edward County will harm the Blanding’s Turtles, an endangered species, at the site. The South Shore Conservancy, represented by Chris Paliare, intervened at the hearing on behalf of the field naturalists.
A Financial Post article on this important decision says: “The Ontario Court of Appeal has ruled that a proposed nine-turbine wind farm in Prince Edward County would cause “serious and irreversible harm” to the Blanding’s Turtle.
