Purpose

The primary goals of the project are to estimate raptor electrocution rates and identify electrocution hazards in the Moon Lake Service Area. This will allow the Moon Lake Electric Association, Inc. to update and refine an existing program for mitigating raptor electrocutions in its service area. A consequence of that program will be a reduction of power line-related mortalities.
