Operation Jeedara 2018

Monday, May 14, 2018

Sea Shepherd returned to the Great Australia Bight in 2018 when Equinor (formerly Statoil) sought approval to conduct exploratory drilling for oil. This time, cameras were taken below the waves in order to document and showcase the importance of marine park sanctuaries to the local ecosystem.
