Thanks for bringing this to our attention, it was certainly the first I had
heard of it! The article is very light on details - are any birding-aussies
out there familiar with details about this project? I suppose it is
possible the impact would be low, if the panels aren't situated in mallee.
The toxic waste dump was bad among other reasons because any leaks would
have gone straight into the water table under the Mallee Emu-wren
So more information would be great, but certainly if there are negative
impacts on Mallee Emu-wrens then I'll be the first to get behind a campaign
to stop the development.
