Tuesday, Oct 04, 2016

Operation Jeedara 2016 is our campaign to showcase what we all stand to lose if BP is given the green light to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight. 

 

Revisit our journey; from the Nuyts Reef, the Isles of St Francis, Pearson Island, Neptune Islands, areas around Kangaroo Island, Fowlers Bay and Head of the Bight (southern right whale nurseries), right through to the iconic Bunda Cliffs of the Nullarbor Plain.
