Windfarms and Brolgas with Hamish Cumming

As we move from traditional power generation methods we may be introducing significant new threats into the landscape.

For many years Hamish Cumming has been trying to protect the Brolgas of western Victoria against the proliferation of windfarms in the prime habitat of the southern population of the Brolga, one of Australia's two crane species, and the only endemic.

Trying to increase the safe buffer zone distance between wind turbines and the feeding, roosting and breeding grounds of the Brolga has been a long term commitment by Hamish.

You may be surprised how a government department charged with protecting vulnerable species can behave.  I hope you learn something about Brolgas, and gain some insight about the issues that transitioning to a new power-generating economy will raise. 

Meet Hamish Cumming and the Brolgas of western Victoria.
