Why this petition matters

Started by Lize Bartels

Please help me, and others, stop the industrialisation of the Ningaloo Reef. We need to urgently take action to protect this natural wonder in the hopes it remains safe and thrives for generations and generations to come. 

Please read what ‘Protect Ningaloo’ has to say:

“Exmouth Gulf – Ningaloo’s Nursery – is one of the rare places left on the planet still bursting with wildlife. Right now, humpback whales are nursing their newborn calves in the calm, warm waters of the Gulf before the arduous journey to Antarctica.

“Recent scientific surveys have revealed Exmouth Gulf is even richer in biodiversity than previously thought and confirm its status as a natural wonder of global importance.

“But Exmouth Gulf is now threatened by industrial development.

“Unfortunately, a multinational oil and gas services company, Subsea 7, plans to construct a pipeline fabrication facility in a natural, wild part of the Exmouth Gulf, and drag and tow enormous gas pipelines and ballast chains through some of its fragile habitats.

“The Gulf is intricately connected to the magnificent Ningaloo Reef, a World Heritage area and generator of much of the region’s thriving tourism industry. It’s so important that we do everything we can to protect the vulnerable Ningaloo-Exmouth Gulf ecosystem from the avoidable threat of industrialisation.

“At a time when coral reefs, mangroves, and populations of whales, dolphins, dugongs, sharks, rays, seabirds and turtles are threatened in many other parts of the world, there is even more reason to relieve the Gulf of unnecessary stress.
