Woodside Energy is getting ready to start seismic blasting near whale migration routes in Western Australia.
Seismic blasting uses underwater airguns to blast powerful soundwaves to the ocean floor to locate fossil fuel reservoirs. The sounds are louder than a jetplane and can seriously damage whales’ hearing. A deaf whale is a dead whale.
We can’t let Woodside put whales in danger just to drill up more climate polluting gas.
