Ban big oil in the Great Australian Bight
Leaked documents show an oil spill in our Great Australian Bight could be catastrophic, reaching as far as Bondi!
Drilling for oil is just too risky in the deep, wild waters of the Great Australian Bight – with the potential to devastate our marine life, local communities, fishing and tourism businesses.
Thanks to tens of thousands of outraged Australians, oil giants BP and Chevron have dropped their plans to drill in the Great Australian Bight.
But Norwegian explorer Equinor (formerly known as Statoil) is still planning to drill in the Bight, including within our Great Australian Bight Marine Park – one of Australia’s biggest, most long-standing and precious marine parks, home to crucial southern right whale and sea lion nurseries!
