Oil and gas company Advent Energy has been given approval to blast sonic waves into the ocean floor to assess gas resources, just 30km off the Newcastle coast.
This seismic testing is set to proceed before the end of May, which could overlap with the start of the whale migration period.
- Seismic testing impacts marine life, impairs the navigation skills of dolphins and whales, and harms commercial fisheries.
- This testing would be only the start. If Advent Energy is not stopped, we could expect more destructive seismic testing and potentially a commercial gasfield off the beautiful NSW coastline.
- NSW must invest in renewable energies, not more fossil fuels which fuel dangerous climate change.
