Professor Brendan Wintle has claimed in a draft report that Adani’s measures for protecting the endangered black-throated finch at its proposed Carmichael coal mine in Queensland are inadequate. Wintle’s review of Adani’s measures to protect the finch was commissioned only recently by the State Government, and it was announced not long after Adani advised that it had finally secured funding for the project. Adani’s management plan for the finch was developed in close consultation with the Queensland Department of the Environment, and it has been endorsed by federal environment officials.
