Sea Shepherd Australia is part of the Fight for the Bight Alliance, whose mission is to stop BP from drilling for oil in the Great Australian Bight.
The Great Australian Bight is rich in beauty and biodiversity, boasting the world’s most significant Southern Right Whale nursery, as well as Humpback, Sperm, Blue and Beaked Whales. It is also Australia’s most important sea lion nursery and supports orcas, great white sharks, southern blue fin tuna and other fish down to the small pelagic.
According to independent oil spill modelling released last year, an oil spill in the Bight from a deep-sea well blowout would be devastating for fisheries, tourism and marine life. The model shows that an oil spill could result in the closure of fisheries in the Bight, Bass Strait and even the Tasman Sea. Even a low-flow oil spill could impact all of southern Australia’s coast, from Western Australia right across to Victoria through Bass Strait and around Tasmania
The Great Australian Bight is one of the last intact wilderness areas left on the planet, and given the state of the world’s oceans; it is of global significance and deserves the outmost protection.
