Tasmanian Wombats Suffering from Wind Turbine Noise & Vibration – STOP THESE THINGS

Wombats (a healthy example appears above) are a lot like their British badger cousins, living and raising their brood underground, nocturnal – getting about after the sun goes down on their hunt for food and mates – and, therefore, prone to the same stress reactions exhibited by badgers living next door to wind turbines.

Stress and anxiety, of course, leave the sufferer at greater risk of infection and disease, which is what appears to be playing out at the Musselroe wind farm. Musselroe’s owner, Tas Hydro is already responsible for the destruction of the rare and endangered Tasmanian Wedge-tailed Eagle at its other Tasmanian wind farm, Woolnorth: Deaths of rare eagles rise

Now it can add hundreds of mangy wombats to its list.
