Deadly seismic blasting has recently been approved in the whale-rich waters of the Great Australian Bight. These sonar cannons fire loud explosions every 10-15 seconds. 24 hours a day. 7 days a week.
They can kill scallops and tiny zooplankton more than a kilometre away. They can damage whales’ hearing and keep them away from key feeding and breeding grounds. They could even affect the immune system of lobsters.
All this on top of recently leaked documents showing an oil spill in our Great Australian Bight could be catastrophic, reaching as far as Bondi!
Sign the petition asking ALL political parties to support a ban on oil and gas in the Great Australian Bight.
