Company description
The Nature Conservancy strongly supports an energy future with lower greenhouse gas emissions, improved energy security and affordable prices. Renewable energy sources, as well as energy efficiency measures, are essential components of an energy approach which will benefit our economy and our environment. But conservative estimates place the cumulative impact of energy development at millions of acres.
And every forest acre cleared creates the loss of several additional acres of interior forest habitat. Many forest species, including the Canada warbler and winter wren, salamanders, tree frogs and woodland flowers, avoid areas near clearings because of increased predation and changes in humidity, light or noise levels.
And the health of many of Pennsylvania's most ecologically valuable forests may be threatened by this disturbance and fragmentation from energy development. That's why The Nature Conservancy is presently conducting a scientific analysis of the where we are likely to see Marcellus shale wells, logging for biomass production, wind turbine and energy transmission lines, and how they might affect Pennsylvania's most ecologically critical forests.
