Sea Shepherd’s Operation Reef Defence will see the M/Y Steve Irwin travel the east coast of Australia to oppose Adani’s destructive coal mine and rail link, and to protect the Great Barrier Reef.
In 2010 BP was responsible for the worlds largest oil spill in the Gulf Of Mexico. Over several months, the rig spewed nearly 5 million barrels of oil into the ocean, killing millions of animals and destroying the surrounding environment. Less than a year later, the Australian Government signed papers allowing BP to come to Australia and drill in deeper and rougher seas. In 2016 The Great Australian Bight Alliance announced the launch of ‘Operation Jeedara’ – a campaign that would see the ‘Steve Irwin’ sail into the heart of the Great Australian Bight to document the beauty of the region in order to showcase what we would all stand to lose if we let BP drill there. This film is the story of the campaign. Please help us the continue the fight for the Bight here: seashepherd.org.au/donate or to find out more about the alliance go to fightforthebight.org.au
