As principal biologist and Vice President of Bloom Biological, England assisted the client in initial discussions on methods for minimizing potential impacts to raptors including Golden Eagle and California Condor, developed a flight identification training program for wind facility staff, and conducted surveys and monitoring during wind facility operation. England and the project team also assisted the client in the early development of measures to minimize risk to California Condors, recently leading to the first incidental take permit given by the US Fish and Wildlife Service for the species. England subsequently turned management of the project over to another staff member, but still conducted site visits and assisted on project strategies.
