Show the world how great the Bight is


We stand with coastal communities and local fisheries and tourism industries in protecting Kangaroo Island and the Great Australian Bight, from the threat of big oil and gas companies. Together we can defend our precious marine environment from the dangers of fossil fuel drilling.

The Great Australian Bight is a beautiful marine environment with a natural history dating back hundreds of millions of years. It's home to endangered and threatened marine animals that need our protection, and supports thriving tourism and fishing industries. All of that is at risk if plans by multinational fossil fuel companies to drill for oil and gas go ahead. We can stop it.

From environmental wonders like Kakadu and takayna/Tarkine, to architectural landmarks like the Sydney Opera House, we as Australians have plenty to be proud of, and to protect. That's why the Great Australian Bight must be protected under the United Nations World Heritage protection agency, like the Great Barrier Reef, Machu Picchu and the Pyramids of Giza. 

Nominating the Bight for the United Nations World Heritage protection list is a long journey, and we must start today to nominate by 2020. We need as many voices as possible calling on the government to act. 


Mr Turnbull and Mr Shorten

I call on you to support the nomination of the Great Australian Bight for the United Nations World Heritage by 2020.

As the decision makers of today, please support the protection of the Great Australian Bight for generations to come. 

Your's sincerely,
