Oil and gas company Asset (Advent) Energy will commence underwater blasting for oil or gas off Newcastle on 9th April. 

This seismic testing will involve underwater airgun blasting every 3-4 seconds, 24 hours a day for 4 days.

Seismic testing has been shown to injure and kill marine animals and impede the communication and navigation of whales and dolphins. This exploration is in the whale migration path, and close to a thriving dolphin habitat. 

Advent Energy plans to proceed with oil or gas rigs off the coast from Newcastle, the Central Coast to North Sydney. The risk of an environmental disaster is unacceptable to the community.

We need you to say NO to this seismic testing, NO to an oil or gas field off Newcastle and the Central Coast, to protect our marine animals and save our coast.
