Save the Bight

The Great Australian Bight lives up to its name – endless cliffs towering over a vast unspoiled ocean full of wild and wonderful marine life, including one of the largest populations of the endangered southern right whale. This unique and pristine marine environment is under threat, with BP’s plans to turn the Great Australian Bight into an oil field – and with it the potential for a catastrophic oil spill

The Wilderness Society’s vision for the Great Australian Bight is for a protected marine environment, where marine life is safe and healthy. Our unspoiled waters must be valued and celebrated. We do not want the risks of catastrophic oil spills along our coastline.

That is why the Wilderness Society is working to halt new large fossil fuel projects, to protect precious marine wilderness areas and to avoid dangerous climate change.

Together, we can save the Bight from these risks.
