Abstract: 

The paper aims to describe the wildlife of the Jhimpir Wind Corridor consisting of 15 species of mammals, 79 species of birds, 13 species of reptiles and 20 species of plants recorded during the environmental studies undertaken in the area during 2012 to 2014.The area is under the influence of the existing/future, Wind Power Plants. This will affect the general ecology of the area and may also affect the distribution and movements of the birds in the area.There are chances of bird mortality in the area due to possible collision against the rotating blades of the turbines of the Wind Power Plants.A Bird Monitoring Strategy has been suggested for the study of the impacts of Wind Power Plants on the ecology and movement of birds in the impacted area.
