Regional Wildlife Science Collaborative for Offshore Wind (RWSC)
The Regional Wildlife Science Collaborative for Offshore Wind (RWSC) was cooperatively established and is led by four Sectors—federal agencies, states, eNGOs, and the offshore wind industry.
The RWSC supports research and monitoring on wildlife and offshore wind by:
- Developing an Integrated Science Plan for Wildlife, Habitat, and Offshore Wind Energy in the U.S. Atlantic that reflects the research and data collection needs of the four Sectors with input from the science community
- Coordinating and aligning funding to meet those priorities
- Ensuring appropriate data and standards are in place to support science priorities
