Squadron Energy has a zero-harm policy for native animals and holds itself to the highest environmental standards.
No koala has been injured or killed during construction of the Clarke Creek Wind Farm and clearing for stage one is 60 per cent complete.
We have experienced wildlife officers on site who conduct assessments 24 hours before work starts and monitor and supervise work as it occurs, to prevent injury to fauna. They are qualified to respond to fauna encounters and relocate animals, if required.
Squadron Energy is proud to hold itself to higher standards than the Biodiversity Management Plan requires.
The Clarke Creek Wind Farm (CCWF) Biodiversity Management Plan contains measures and guidance for handling any fauna that may be encountered during work on site.
In the unlikely event of injury – any animals encountered must be assessed for injury to determine whether the animal requires further treatment and care by a vet or wildlife carer.
All animal handling, if required, is conducted in accordance with the QLD Government Code of Practice – Care of Sick, Injured or Orphaned Protected Animals in Queensland.
