ACTION: Last chance to save whale hotspot, Kangaroo Island

ACTION: Last chance to save whale hotspot, Kangaroo Island



"Kangaroo Island’s whales and dolphins are still at risk from oil and
gas exploration and this is our final chance to protect them.
Bight
Petroleum are still ploughing ahead with their application to conduct
seismic testing off Kangaroo Island, despite the previous Environment
Minister twice demanding a higher level of environmental assessment  for
this proposal.
Worryingly, Bight Petroleum’s plan to carry out
seismic testing in this whale hotspot is one of many development
proposals for the wider Great Australian Bight (GAB). BP has already
carried out a huge seismic surveying program in the GAB and further
seismic surveying has been proposed or is already under way in the
area."
