Protecting Our Birds in Flight
For over forty years Mel Walters has helped keep birds safe from structures
and electrical facilities. As an environmental biologist and consultant he
provides expertise in wildlife and wetland mitigation, endangered species,
osprey habitat, erosion control, and avian protection. Currently he manages
Puget Sound Energy’s Avian Protection Program – responding to all avian
power line incidents and prioritizing areas of concern and actions needed
to proactively prevent electrocutions and collisions and improve system
reliability. The Avian Protection Program promotes a consistent avian-safe
system across PSE’s entire service area. Installation of osprey nests in
isolated areas away from power lines, installation of bird guards and
installation of flight diverter devices are a few of the techniques used to
reduce the impact of the electrical system on bird mortality. Come and find
out more about what PSE is doing to protect birds near electrical
transmission lines.
