Goodbye BPDear Friend,
BP is gone from the Bight. It is still a little hard to believe that the oil giant finally saw the writing on the wall and left.
Of course, there is still much to do to ensure that the Great Australian Bight is protected for good from oil and gas drilling—but this is a huge first step.
Next cab off the rank is Chevron and the other companies that have exploration rights to drill offshore in the deep waters of the Bight.
Sign the petition to call on Prime Minister Turnbull to permanently protect the Bight.
On behalf of the staff and Board of The Wilderness Society, thank you to all our members and supporters who have supported the campaign to date. Let’s keep up the pressure to protect the Bight for good.
National Director, The Wilderness Society
P.S. Read more about the successful campaign in this excellent article from The Australian.
