An organisation of Native American Tribes has joined a growing chorus in opposing floating wind development in the deep waters off the Pacific Northwest state of Oregon.

The Confederated Tribes of the Coos, Lower Umpqua, and Siuslaw Indians released a statement calling the recently formed draft wind energy areas (WEAs) in the Coos Bay and Brookings call areas “premature” and a threat to “fisheries, local fishing jobs, and some of Oregon’s pristine ocean viewsheds.”
