Congratulations Rhett Good

We are excited to announce Rhett Good’s recent promotion to Principal Biologist! Rhett joined WEST 26 years ago as a field biologist on a study that examined the impacts of wind energy on birds and bats at Foote Creek Rim, Wyoming; one of the first wind energy facilities constructed outside of California. Since that time Rhett has served several roles at WEST, from Project Biologist to Project Manager for research and monitoring studies of wind energy and wildlife, to opening WEST’s Bloomington, Indiana, branch office and serving as a Senior Manager. Rhett is recognized as a Certified Wildlife Biologist® by The Wildlife Society. He received his master’s degree in Zoology from the University of Wyoming, and his bachelor’s in Biology from Ball State University. Rhett now utilizes his experience to serve as Senior Advisor to WEST’s Bat Practice and Detection Dog Practice Groups.  He works with a variety of clients and WEST experts on bat related projects and currently leads WEST’s efforts to further our tools that clients can utilize to reduce the impacts of wind energy to bats. 

“The wind energy and bat space is an exciting and fast evolving field. I have always enjoyed the mixture of research and monitoring projects at WEST, which is what has kept me here for 26 years. I think our founders’ science-based approach to consulting has helped WEST attract some of the best biologists and statisticians in the country. I am excited to help our clients and work with our experts to find solutions that reduce the impacts of wind-energy to bats and other wildlife.”  

Congratulations, Rhett!
