Wind Farms Links 2021

Links to sections and pages about the wind farms and threats / risks. At 21/3/2021 there are possibly 4 wind farms with a total of 48 generators that pose threats to the caves within the Matienzo Caves Project's current and previous permit areas - Garma Blanca (13); La Rasa (9+7?); Mullir (15) and Las Quebraduras (4). There are also, of course, 40m high pylons and cables along with tens of kilometres of access roads which also threaten the area.
This section will be updated when more information emerges.
