Pioneer Trail Wind Farm seeks permission to kill endangered bats –

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On April 20, 2015

Ford and Iroquois Counties, IL. (ECWd) –

We were forwarded a public notice published in a local newspaper in northern Vermilion County.

The notice was published by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, IDNR, and it is for an application by the Pioneer Trail Wind Farm’s for an “incidental take permit” that would authorize them to kill Indiana and long-eared bats – presumably while the turbines are in operation – and for the next 40 years.

Indiana and long-eared bats are classified according to the Endangered Species Act.

    It will be very interesting and revealing if The Sierra Club, The Nature Conservancy, et.al of their kind are willing to spend the money on lawyers to fight the issuance of this permit by the Illinois DNR.
