Animal and plant species in the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve may be under threat from potential mining, and Terri Irwin has something to say about it.

Although mining company Cape Alumina’s CEO Paul Messenger has claimed it has “no plans to develop in sensitive wet land areas,” Terri Irwin has made it clear there are species that may be affected by any such presence. Cape Alumina’s mining lease application would overlap to about 15 percent of the 333,450-acre reserve, renamed as “Croc Hunter” in 2006.

Terri Irwin has cited the area contains rare bird as well as “vulnerable” plant species.

The mining company seeks the reserve’s bauxite, used in aluminum production. In order to settle the dispute The Queensland state government is slated to conduct an environmental assessment prior to any mining
