COASTALWATCH | NEWS

The surfer-led resistance to Norwegian oil giant Equinor's plans to drill in our Great Australian Bight continues after a dozen or so paddle out protests across the country on Sunday March 3.

Equinor's own estimations show that a worst case oil spill could have devastating impact on coasts ranging from Margaret River to Port Macquarie, (including Tassie) an unfathomably large stretch of coast.

You've likely heard of this issue already, and if you haven't you should give Nick Carroll's piece on the issue a read right now, and then you should head to the Equinor Public Comment page and let them know exactly how you feel about this.

This Sunday, those on the southern Gold Coast (and further) who want to physically show solidarity with other surfers concerned about the drilling proposal can join the Paddle Out To Fight For The Bight at Burleigh.

DEETS

What: Paddle out to Fight For The Bight
Location: Justins Park, Burleigh Beach 
Date:  Sunday 17th March
Time: From 10 am

More details of the paddle out can be found on the Paddle Out For The Bight, Burleigh Heads Facebook Page.

FYI, Melbourne will also play host to a paddle out protest at St Kilda Beach the following Sunday March 24. Stay tuned.
