“The resignation of the Chair of the NSW Fisheries Scientific Committee, Associate Professor Mark Lintermans, puts a spotlight on the NSW Government’s refusal to take scientific advice about the environmental disaster that will unfold as a result of Snowy 2.0” lamented Gary Dunnett, Executive Officer of the National Parks Association of NSW, and Andrew Cox, Chief Executive Officer of the Invasive Species Council.
Approval of Snowy 2.0 EIS sets appalling precedents, and all for an inferior project
“Today’s approval of the Snowy 2.0 construction project in Kosciuszko National Park marks a new low in the NSW Government’s refusal to protect threatened species and natural landscapes” stated Gary Dunnett, Executive Officer of the National Parks Association of NSW.
“NPA welcomes today’s release of a monumental tome on one of Australia’s natural wonders – Kosciuszko National Park” says Gary Dunnett, Executive Officer of the National Parks Association of NSW.
The new book examines the history of the Snowy Mountains and tells the story of how Kosciuszko National Park, against the odds, was established and protected for all Australians to enjoy.

“Despite the rapidly growing realisation that the massive Snowy 2.0 development is a deeply flawed, environmental disaster that will drive a species into extinction and offer woefully inefficient and costly energy storage, the NSW Government has signalled that it is determined to ram the project through under their short-cut approvals program to create temporary construction jobs” stated Mr Gary Dunnett, Executive Officer of the National Parks Association of NSW.
