A petition has started to have a Dundonnell (Victoria) site
protected from wind farm development.  The area is prime habitat with
probably the highest density of flocking and nesting sites in Victoria for
Brolga which is a threatened species in the State.  The site is also of
national significance for a number endangered flora and fauna species
including Latham's Snipe.

The Victorian Planning Minister, Richard Wynne, is being petitioned not to
grant a planning permit for the wind farm.  Brolga are under severe pressure
in Victoria from habitat loss.   Please sign the petition to help us save
this valuable habitat.  There are other sites for wind farms in less
sensitive areas but once displaced the Brolga will have nowhere to go.
