The Great Australian Bight: a pristine wilderness at risk | Greenpeace Australia



The Great Australian Bight is one of Australia’s most precious ocean environments.

It’s home to thriving communities, it’s the heart of Australia’s fishing industry and has hundreds of kilometres of towering cliffs and pristine beaches.

And some of the most unique marine life on Earth live right here in these waters.

But right now the Bight is under threat from oil companies, led by Norwegian giant Statoil, who are ready to risk a devastating spill here to drill for oil.
