Science - Environment & Ecology / schemes to reduce greenhouse emissions
English term or phrase: bird lobby
There is one viable scheme waiting to be constructed in the Severn estuary - a tidal brrage which could generate the equivalent of two nuclear power stations worth of electricity. Yet support has been muted for fear of upsetting the bird lobby.

Ist hier die Vogelwelt gemeint oder einfach nur die Leute, die die Vogelarten erhalten wollen?

Vielen Dank für die freundliche Untertstützung!

agree  Elke Vogelsang: Ich würde diese Personen wohl eher Vogelschützer nennen, denn Lobby hört sich in diesem Zusammenhang meines Erachtens seltsam an. Aber trotzdem: agree
