Save the Bight, Apollo Bay

Save the Bight, Apollo Bay

Publicly oppose any plans for oil drilling in the Great Australian Bight.

Why is this important?

Oil exploration in the Great Australian Bight threatens the marine ecosystems and wildlife unique to our area. The local tourism industry of areas that would be affected by an oil spill would suffer huge impacts. Oil is an outdated form of energy, we need to transition to a cleaner and more sustainable energy future. The ocean is central to our community's way of life; fishing, surfing, swimming and tourism. All of this will be severely threatened by oil drilling off our coast.

Reasons for signing

  • I am from apollo bay and I would be so devastated if I couldn't even swim anymore! FIGHT FIR THE BIGHT!
  • I've cycled along the Great Ocean Road, and it's delightful... but so is all of Australia's coastline. We must protect it. Has nobody told our politicians and oil company execs that not many cars will not need much petrol/gasoline/diesel in 10-15 years time. They are not better than cigarette company execs, just trying to grab some final dollars before the inevitable. it's a disgrace, and they have our politicians conned.
  • The southern ocean 🌊 is the nursery of the sea its also the most ferocious waves with higher potential for accidents the minuscule amount of dated fossil fuel they will find is ridiculous in comparison to the risk to Australia’s tourist industry and our precious beaches the property of the people of this land get off your trespassing.
