Greens demand action over eagle’s death  

Credit:  ABC News, www.abc.net.au 16 November 2010 ~~

The Greens have used State Parliament to raise concerns about the death of a wedge-tailed eagle at the Woolnorth wind farm.

Braddon MHA Paul O’Halloran says it was the north-west region’s only successful fledgling for the entire breeding season.

He called on the Environment Minister David O’Byrne to take action.

“If no modelling or monitoring is occurring in relation to juvenile eagles in the Woolnorth area, how can you justify your inaction and will you now commit to getting modelling and monitoring underway as a matter of urgency?”

Mr O’Byrne has promised to investigate.

He says the incident is concerning, given the low number of breeding pairs left.

“I will undertake to get further details. It is obviously concerning when any wedge-tailed eagle dies in Tasmania, we acknowledge that,” he said.

“We will be working assiduously with companies in the renewable energy area to minimise their impact on native populations.”
