Say NO to Oil and Gas exploration off Australia's south coast.

We are making progress, but we have only 5 days left. If you haven’t already then please SIGN and SHARE the petition.

5 days left to save habitat critical to these Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins.

Kangaroo Island is a magical area where sperm whales dive for squid, sea lions forage and hunt and rock lobsters thrive. The mighty blue whale travels from afar every year to feed in these rich waters, but the petroleum industry is attempting to open this precious area as a new frontier for oil and gas. Without your voice saying NO to these plans, this critical habitat will be destroyed and the animals who depend on it will suffer.

The largest animal on the planet, the blue whale, deserves our protection after all we’ve put it through.
The area up for exploitation is on the south east coast of the state of South Australia.
A close up of the area proposed for oil and gas exploration and … exploitation.

For more of a birds-eye (or dolphins-eye) view of the area, watch this lovely video here. Collectively, across all the different international petitions, protests and emails we have already generated nearly 20,000 signatures. Let’s make it 30,000, before our comment window closes on Monday 18th March. Please tell the Australian Environment Minister to reject this proposal!

Your signature can help these majestic animals to continue flourishing in this pristine habitat.
