Spend Fathers Day with Bob Brown
A message from Bob Brown:
On Sunday 2nd September (Fathers Day), come along and bring Dad to the see the Sea Shepherd ship the M/V Steve Irwin at Circular Quay – and help save the world’s biggest Humpback Whale nursery.
Right now, the M/V Steve Irwin is on its way back from the remote Kimberley Coast where upwards of 10,000 Humpbacks are gathered and hundreds of babies have been born this spring. BUT Woodside, backed by Shell, BHP Billiton, BP and Mitsubishi, is planning the world’s biggest gas factory with a huge breakwater and dredged channel right through the nursery.
Thirty four million tonnes of dredge spoil will be dumped back into this pristine marine ecosystem which is also home to rare dolphins, turtles and dugongs. The project threatens 130 million year old dinosaur tracks, traditional Aboriginal cultural sites and species such as owls, bats and bilbies.
Analysts say it would be CHEAPER for Woodside to build its gas hub elsewhere.
You can help stop this heritage attack. Join me, the Steve Irwin crew, and a host of other campaigners to help save the whales and Kimberley Coast – 11am, here in Sydney on September 2nd.
