Operation Jeedara: The Campaign

Wednesday, 14 Sep, 2016

In 2016, BP and Chevron sought to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight. As much of the landscapes and diversity of life in the Great Australian Bight were previously unknown to the world, we sent our ship, the M/Y Steve Irwin on an expedition to showcase the Great Australian Bight and highlight what was at stake: a pristine wilderness of global significance.
