Plaintiff challenged the extension of an existing coal mine due to its negative effects on biodiversity, water quality, threatened species, and health. Specifically, the Giant Barred Frog, a threatened species, would be negatively impacted through habitat destruction and the mine’s direct contribution to climate change. The Australia state court re-approved the extension, but under the condition that the defendant prepare and implement a Biodiversity Management Plan for the project.
