Impact of offshore wind energy development on seabirds (OWF-seabirds)

The aim of the project is to investigate the effects of offshore wind turbines on seabirds in the North Sea and Baltic Sea. Currently, the expansion of offshore wind farms (OWPs) in the German EEZ is progressing rapidly; plans for the next decades indicate large-scale dimensions. This makes the cumulative effects of the operation of many wind farms and assessments of the consequences of further wind farms for seabirds central to this project.
