Titirangi Protection Group is calling on Conservation Minister Kiri Allan to intervene after Watercare was granted consent to replace a water treatment plant in Auckland, Stuff reports. According to the protection group, a new species of wasp was found where the replacement of the 100-year-old Huia Water Treatment Plant is intended in Auckland’s Waitākere Ranges and the works could cause its extinction.
