Fears snowy project's green light will seal endangered fish's fate

Description

The Bereijklian government has given planning approval for the multibillion-dollar Snowy 2.0 pumped hydro project, prompting warnings the move will cause the extinction of a rare native fish species.

Mark Lintermans, an associate professor at the University of Canberra, resigned as chairman of the NSW Fisheries Scientific Committee, saying the giant project would likely transfer invasive fish into the final 3 kilometre stretch that plays host to the critically endangered stocky galaxias.
