Sierra Club and IUCN say 'mining in conservation areas: WTF?'

Metiria Turei and the Greens have highlighted that the Sierra Club has formally written to the Government to say what on earth are you doing thinking about mining in conservation areas. The Greens have made public a copy of the Sierra Club's letter.

The International Union for the Conservation of Nature has also commented on what message is sent by New Zealand, a relatively wealthy country, considering resource extraction from areas set aside for conservation of biodiversity.

I guess John Key's office will advise both groups that they can soon expect a considered answer from the hon Ann Tolley, the part-Minister of Education.
