Stand with some of Australia's surfing legends in protecting the Great Australian Bight! 

The Issue

The Great Australian Bight is one of the world’s most pristine wilderness areas, home to animals seen nowhere else on Earth. 

Norwegian oil-giant Equinor has just been given environmental approval to drill for oil in the rough seas of the Great Australian Bight from Australia's offshore oil and gas regulator NOPSEMA. Now, Equinor has just two approvals needed before drilling activity can begin.

The Issue

The Great Australian Bight is one of the world’s most pristine wilderness areas, home to animals seen nowhere else on Earth. 

Norwegian oil-giant Equinor has just been given environmental approval to drill for oil in the rough seas of the Great Australian Bight from Australia's offshore oil and gas regulator NOPSEMA. Now, Equinor has just two approvals needed before drilling activity can begin.

Drilling in the pristine waters of the Great Australian Bight will irrevocably damage the marine environment. Faced with the looming threat of an oil spill, the reality of deafening seismic blasts and climate destruction, drilling in the Great Australian Bight is simply not worth the risk. 

What can we do? 

Equinor has publicly stated that “if we are not wanted here, we will not push through resistance.” Now is the time to keep the pressure on Equinor by letting them know they are not welcome in the Bight. 

We know we can win this because we’ve done it before. As a proud member of the Great Australian Bight Alliance, we have been fighting for the protection of the Bight since 2016. We've already forced BP and Chevron to abandon their plans for drilling in the remote waters of the Great Australian Bight. Now it's Equinor's turn. 

Stand with us in protecting the Bight from risky deep-sea oil drilling by sending a letter to Equinor today.
