National Park or National disgrace?

I wanted to share a video that has been circulating the last two days highlighting the plans for an underground tunnel from Queenstown to Milford Sound in New Zealand.

As an avid hiker and lover of native NZ, I am devastated but angry to see this. For travellers to NZ the two hour journey from Queenstown to Milford Sound is one of magnificence and utter beauty. I remember driving this 4 years ago as I myself made my way to Te Anau to do the Milford Track.

It is beyond me that tourism operators would push to have this tunnel and for visitors to miss such an astounding drive through Utopia.

Our native bush, native birds and quiet generous towns will be ripped apart and changed forever.

This video shows you the beauty and what is set to be destroyed forever.
