Fight for the Bight is at a crucial point. Equinor, a Norwegian energy company, are planning on deep sea oil drilling in the Great Australian Bight, beginning this year. Their newly released environmental plan indicates that if an oil spill were to occur, it would reach up to Port Macquarie on the NSW north coast. The environmental and economical devastation will affect coastal communities throughout South Australia, Western Australian, Victoria, Tasmania and New South Wales.

Meet at Old Bar main beach at 10am for a group shot! Saltwater Boardriders will be there as well as Taree Old Bar Surf Life Saving Club Nippers! The aim of the meet is to make our voices heard, and show Equinor that we care about our beaches, oceans and marine life!

Have your say on the proposed oil drilling through the following link. This public forum is open until the 20th of March; https://www.nopsema.gov.au/environmental-management/open-for-comment-stromlo-1-exploration-drilling-program-draft-environment-plan/form-public-comment-on-draft-environment-plan-stromlo-1-exploration-drilling-program/?fbclid=IwAR1II1p56LODV_nrIOUGBYj8IfNQX9jmPVltGWzt1Y7Hpqki8tKxXeGHkCE
