A search using the words.    rio tinto red goshawk       reveals media releases and other publicity about the project. 
Personally I'm not sure a mining company is the right organisation to be doing it though

I am also rather concerned about this but then I wondered why. There can be
useful benefits to learning about possible movements of these birds, and if
Rio Tinto have the funds to support it, and others don't, I would guess that
this (money) is an obvious answer to Michael's question about "What could
possibly induce". Even so, why it should happen that way raises suspicions
about motives and good work of Greg to bring to notice. It is odd if no
information has been made available from this. Maybe it takes time. Even so
at this stage I am wondering if there is an overreaction.

You can be certain that if Rio Tinto is not transparent about its Red
Goshawk intervention then they will be killing at least some of them.

What could possibly induce the Queensland Government to hand this project to
Rio Tinto itself rather than giving it to independent researchers.?
