Australian Landscape Guardians
The Australian Landscape Guardians (ALG) is and Australian anti-wind farm lobby group which was incorporated in July 2007. While the group proclaims that it is concerned about a broad range of impacts on the Australian landscape, the only projects it has specifically campaigned on and provides resources to on its website are opposing the development of windfarms. The most recent material the group links to dates back to 2010.
Back in May 2006, the Sydney Morning Herald reported that similar groups "using the Landscape Guardians moniker" are "based in the village of Taralga. Its members are challenging a local wind farm project in the Land and Environment Court. Their president, Paul Miskelly, worked for the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation for 32 years and has given talks on nuclear power."
