The Andrews Government has recently released five new oil and gas exploration blocks off the Otway coast.
Western Victoria is blessed with pristine oceans, home to humpback whales, southern right whales, dolphins and even orcas who depend on a clean and healthy ecosystem for breeding and survival. Its agricultural and tourism industries contribute much to the local and regional economy, and rely on a healthy environment to thrive.
Further to these threats, offshore oil and gas drilling will be a major new source of greenhouse pollution.
Climate science makes it abundantly clear that time is running out if we want to avoid catastrophic climate change. We must keep remaining fossil fuels in the ground.
In 2017, the Andrews Government displayed true leadership, legislating a permanent ban on fracking in Victoria.
The New Zealand government has banned new exploration permits for offshore oil. Victoria should do the same.
This exploration is a real risk to Victoria's coastline. Your donation can help us prevent it.
