Thankyou AusOcean 💙💙💙The face you make when you realise the deep sea port proposal in Smith Bay involves the direct dredging of 15ha of seafloor ☹️ This means extensive habitat loss for many species of conservation concern including the Southern blue devil and Weedy sea dragon. You still have 8 days to respond to the proposal - it is not too late to have your voice heard 🌊💙
Exotic marine pests and aquatic diseases in Smith Bay are inevitable if the SA Government approves KPT’s industrial Seaport.
KPT says it can keep risk at an “acceptable” level by adopting “rigorous biosecurity standards”, but there is no standard for what is “acceptable”. Who will implement the marine pest management program, who will police it – and who will pay when KPT compromises Smith Bay.
Introducing marine pests at Smith Bay is unacceptable.
Greenpeace Australia Pacific 🌊 Across the country, hundreds of thousands of Australians are standing up for our coastlines, beaches and futures. These people know that letting big oil companies plunder the Great Australian Bight for dirty oil is risky business. 🌊
This short documentary by Thunderbox Films tells the story of those on the frontline for the #fightforthebight.
