Sea Shepherd is heading back to protect the Great Australian Bight.
Two years ago, Operation Jeedara showcased a truly remarkable place – one of Mother Nature’s greatest and grandest shows on Earth. As a result, both BP and Chevron have since pulled out of drilling for oil in the Bight. This time, we’ll take our cameras below the waves to reveal more secrets from this natural wonderland as Statoil and Santos now have their eyes on the Bight. We’ll also explore and gather vital evidence to prove just how important Marine Park Sanctuaries are to the Bight.
In 2010, BP was responsible for the world's worst oil disaster, when their oil rig, the Deepwater Horizon, spilled over 800 million litres of oil into the Gulf of Mexico for over 87 days, killing 11 people, and caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of sea turtles, sea birds, fish, whales, and dolphins, damaged fisheries and the marine environment.
