An oil spill would be catastrophic.

Norwegian oil giant Statoil, one of the most aggressive oil explorers in the world, is intent on drilling in the Great Australian Bight.

Statoil’s plans to drill in the South Australian coastline come at a time when their record of incidents and spills at wells have increased catastrophically, including a doubling of the volume of oil spills from their Norwegian wells last year.

Countless endangered marine animals, including whales and sea lions, are at risk from oil spills.

Greenpeace is not afraid to tackle the huge corporations behind these environmental abuses, but we need you with us. Can you help fund our campaign to take on greedy oil companies in the Bight?

A whale nursery is no place for oil drilling.

The Great Australian Bight is truly remarkable. It supports thriving marine ecoystems and is home to countless unique species - most are found nowhere else in the world. Sharing the Bight's waters are endangered southern right whales. Almost hunted to extinction in the 19th century; their population is still recovering. On top of imminent threats to their hearing from Seismic blasting, an oil spill in the Bight could devastate their survival. Oil and whales simply don't mix. Please donate today and help to protect their irreplacable habitat.
