Brazil

The construction and operation of power lines leads to various threats to biodiversity. For birds, the introduction of new obstacles in their usual flight path may lead to a direct risk of mortality. In Brazil, the evidence of avian interaction with power lines is mainly presented in monitoring reports made to meet environmental licensing process conditions.
