U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Considers Wind Farm’s Application to Harm and Harass Protected Bats

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (FWS) received an application for a six-year incidental take permit from Indiana Crossroads Wind Farm which would authorize the wind farm to incidentally harm and harass endangered Indiana bats and threatened northern long-eared bats. Accompanying the application is the wind farm’s proposed habitat conservation plan. FWS is accepting public comments on the application through January 27, 2022.
