Dear fb friend,
I was privileged to be a crew member on the Steve Irwin during Operation Kimberley Miinimbi, during this campaign I witnessed hundreds of Hump back whales happily enjoying the peace and security of the largest Hump back nursery in the world. These whales have been coming to this place to breed and nurse their young since the dinosaurs roamed our planet and the establishment of a gas hub at James Price Point would be devastating. The establishment of the port and pier stretching out into the nursery would have a catastrophic effect on these magnificent creatures. All of it's support vessels and hundreds of ships it will service per year would cause severe noise pollution within the nursery and the chance of vessels striking these whales would be simply unavoidable due to the prolific population being in the immediate vicinity. This truly remarkable pristine coastline must not be destroyed, it's value is not in it's resources, it's value is in it's beauty, it's people, the many indigenous plants, abundant wildlife and the millions of people around the world that travel to this amazing place to experience it's culture and pristine wilderness. Please help us make the West Australian Government aware of the worlds disgust at the prospect of this project going ahead, be a voice for the voiceless and sign the petition, I know the whales would thankyou if they could.
Thanks, James Brown.
