Adani mine in Australia would "remove" a top habitat for the black-throated finch

Commenting on the Australia's Queensland government’s Department of Environment and Science decision that India's powerful Adani Group's plan to "manage" its proposed mine’s impacts on the endangered black-throated finch is "inadequate", the international NGO 350.org has said that is "yet another example of the failure of this company to meet the standards expected of the mining industry in Australia."
The top NGO's Australian office in a statement said, "We have lost 29 Australian bird species in the last 200 years, and Australians don’t want to see more extinctions on our watch. The Adani mine, if it were to proceed, would remove one of the last remaining habitats for the black-throated finch."
The Adanis' plan to “save” this bird included a proposal to relocate the last of the species to a habitat that happens to sit on land owned by Clive Palmer – and is under a current proposal for another coal mine that would remove that habitat. Glen Klatovsky, CEO of 350 Australia, said, "It is good to see science guiding the assessment of the Queensland government. Australians expect that if you want access to our public assets you must take your responsibilities seriously.”
