Pantex to research wind energy's effect on wildlife

Posted: Updated:

Amarillo, TX - A local wildlife study being done throughout Pantex is breaking new ground.

In preparation for a renewable energy project, Pantex has partnered with West Texas A&M University and Texas Tech University to study the Swainson's Hawk.

Fitting these birds with tracking devices will allow researchers to study how the birds are affected by the installation of wind turbines.
