The building of Sauland Power Plant will primarily impact wildlife linked to the waterways and the actual affected area. The main impact of the development will be on species such as the white-throated dipper, grey wagtail, common goldeneye duck and beaver. For these species, reduced populations must be expected over time. For species that maintain their areas/territories, reduced reproduction may result. Other wildlife in the area will primarily be affected during the construction phase, without this having noticeable effects on the local populations. The development is not expected to have a significant effect on rare or endangered species. As a whole, the development will impact few areas of value in a broader context. The impact on wildlife within the area of influence will be within the range of small to medium negative.
