Wildlife Protection Laws – Are they Applied?

My experience with the Bald Hills wind farm has highlighted what I believe to be a general failure in the application of the laws. The consequence is that many species that are supposed to be protected are not. I have provided a couple of examples below however it would be easy to select more. This failure to respond properly to wildlife protection laws could be occurring on other impact assessments for other types of projects proposed at other locations throughout Victoria.
