Call on Minister Plibersek to protect Robbins Island – critical habitat for birds and devils.

Hidden

Stop Robbins Island Wind Farm

More Information

Environment Minister Tanya Plibersek has 30 days to decide the fate of critically endangered birds, migratory species and Tasmanian Devils threatened by the Robbins Island wind farm.

Renewable energy projects should not cost the Earth or its wildlife

Robbins Island sits one kilometre off the coast near Montague in Tasmania’s North West. The 9,900 hectare island sits at the end of one of the busiest migratory bird flyways, making it the worst possible site for what is proposed as the largest wind farm in the southern hemisphere.

This is a haven for shorebirds – more shorebirds nest and breed on Robbins Island and the Robbins Passage than the rest of Tasmania combined.

Some of these birds migrate from as far away as Siberia, Alaska and Korea. Separated from mainland Tasmania, Robbins Island shelters an important Tasmanian Devil population, free of the Tasmanian Devil Facial Tumour Disease.
