An oil spill would be catastrophic

Leaked documents show that an oil spill from Equinor's proposed drilling location in the Great Australian Bight could be so widespread that it could reach many of our iconic beaches like our iconic Bondi beach, St Kilda beach and even Wineglass Bay.


With Equinor planning to drill as early as next summer, we’re ramping up our push for permanent protection of the Bight that would see it protected from reckless oil drilling forever.


Read the report

Did you know that 85% of species found in the Great Australian Bight are found nowhere else on Earth? The Bight is the home and breeding ground of the endangered Southern Right Whale. Almost hunted to extinction in the 19th century; their population is still recovering. We cannot let this habitat be risked by big oil.
