“Marinus will wreck the only known natural population of disease-free Tasmanian Devils on Earth,” said former Greens leader Bob Brown in Hobart today.
“It will put up power prices for all Tasmanians. Marinus will transform Robbins Island in north-west Tasmania from the most important stronghold for the critically endangered Tasmanian Devil to another disease-ridden one.”
“Marinus also threatens large swathes of Tasmanian forests and an array of shore birds which migrate from Siberia each year to feed adjacent to Robbins Island, which will be converted into a giant windfarm by Marinus,” Bob Brown said.
“The Albanese Government should stop this project.”
