Fears for wedge-tailed eagles at Woolnorth wind farm  

It’s claimed the number of wedge-tailed eagles dying at the Woolnorth wind farm in Tasmania’s far north-west is continuing to rise.

Over the past month, two of the endangered birds have been killed after flying into turbines.

The wind power company, Roaring 40s, says ten eagles have been killed at the farm over the past four years.

But Dr Eric Woehler from Birds Tasmania believes the figure is higher and is calling for action.

“Clearly it’s unacceptable, I mean you can’t just keep on killing an endangered species,” said Dr Woehler.

“Its unsustainable and the Government needs to look at what it can do to stop these deaths from continuing.”
