Despite both BP and Chevron pulling out of plans to drill for oil in the pristine Great Australian Bight, Norwegian company Statoil is now planning on doing just that.
Sign the Greenpeace petition against it here.
The beautiful Bight is home to dozens of seaside communities, majestic southern right whales, sea lions and hundreds of kilometres of towering cliffs. But all of that is at risk.
Statoil is a company willing to take risks where no other company will. They are currently pursuing dangerous drilling further north than ever before in the fragile Arctic. And their safety record is getting worse: the number of spills and incidents at Statoil wells has increased catastrophically in the last year.
It’s up to us to keep the Bight - and the communities and incredible ocean ecosystems that depend on it - safe from Big Oil. Are you with us? Join the movement to keep Big Oil out of the Bight for good. sign here
