Luckily for the orange-bellied parrot, it spends some of the year in a marginal seat that's arguing about the aesthetics of wind farms. Our whales, sooty owls, tiger quolls and hundreds of other threatened species aren't so lucky under the Federal Government's Environment Act.
The $11 million logging industry in East Gippsland, for example, takes out threatened species every day without a shred of concern from the Howard Government.
