Ban the Factory Trawler

The Geelong Star

The large factory freezer trawler, the Geelong Star, has already killed nine dolphins and four seals.

The impact on threatened marine life has been a major concern since this trawler was allowed into the country.

Please tell the Australian Government to ban the Geelong Star and stop industrial-scale factory freezer trawlers from fishing in our waters.

Save our snubfin dolphins and the Great Barrier Reef

Your donation today can help stop the coal industry from building a mega port at Abbot Point on the Great Barrier Reef coast, which is in the middle of critical snubfin dolphin habitat.

With only 1000 dolphins remaining, this is unacceptable.

If your donation is made before June 30 it will be matched, dollar for dollar by The Thomas Foundation. That will double your impact to save our Reef and the threatened animals that call it home, like our snubfin dolphin..
