Wind farms must be bird-proof: Govt

The Commonwealth Department of the Environment has declared a proposed wind-farm in northwest Tasmania can not be built unless there's protection for birds that might fly into the huge blades.

Hydro Tasmania says it has been asked to prepare a management plan to care for several bird species in the area, it's confident it can comply at no extra cost and without delay.

"We have to do the monitoring to comply with the State government requirements and it won't delay the start of the project either because almost all the plans have actually been prepared. We just have to finalise them and get them approved by Environment Australia," Andrew Pattle of Hydro Tasmania said.
