Anti-windfarm campaigners welcome parrot funding  

www.abc.net.au

Anti-windfarm campaigners have welcomed Federal Government money to save an endangered parrot species.

The federal Environment Minister, Senator Ian Campbell, has announced more than $3 million to preserve the habitat of the orange bellied parrot.

Senator Campbell recently overturned planning approval for the Bald Hills windfarm in south Gippsland, saying it would harm the parrot, but is now reconsidering his decision.

Tim LeRoy from the Tarwin Valley Coastal Guardians says the bird is critically endangered.

“People need to realise there’s only 200 of these birds left on the planet, now there may be small parrots but imagine if there are only 200 elephants left in the world, there’d be an enormous outcry,” he said.

“So I think the Minister’s showing a lot of fortitude in making this decision.”
