Support the Great Australian Bight Permanent Protection Bill
Mr Turnbull and Mr Shorten,
I call on you to support The Australian Greens' Bill to permanently protect the Great Australian Bight from companies that continue to try and drill for oil and gas in these pristine waters.
The entire South Australian coast along with sections of Victoria, WA, Tasmania and NSW are all in the firing line if we have a Gulf of Mexico style disaster in the Bight. A spill would be devastating for the environment and marine life as well as thousands of fisheries and tourism jobs across the country.
As the decision makers of today, please support this bill to ensure the protection of the Great Australian Bight for generations to come.
