Effects of Wireless Radiation on Birds and Other Wildlife

Effects of Wireless Radiation on Birds and Other Wildlife

Electromagnetic Radiation Safety, July 18, 2016

Dr. Albert Manville II, a retired wildlife biologist from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service, has issued a public memo in which he reviews the scientific literature that examines the impacts on wildlife from exposure to radio frequency radiation (RFR) and makes recommendations.

He notes that although the FCC has standards to protect humans at least from the heating  (i.e., thermal) effects of RFR exposure from cellular and broadcast towers, no standards exist to protect wildlife from thermal or non-thermal effects.
Dr. Manville provides a series of recommendations for the U.S. to adopt because federally-protected wildlife species are currently in danger from RFR exposure.

Dr. Albert Manville II is an adjunct faculty member at Johns Hopkins University. He served as a senior wildlife biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from 1997 to 2014.  He chaired the Communication Tower Working Group, partnering with the communications industry, federal and state agencies, researchers, and non-profit organizations. He testified more than 40 times before Congress and other governmental bodies and published more 170 papers. 
A summary and a link to Dr, Manville's memo are available on my Electromagnetic Radiation Safety website athttp://bit.ly/savewildlifeRFR.
