Hands Across The Sand Sisters Beach

On Saturday the 21st of May, people will join hands worldwide to end our dependence on dirty fuels and look ahead to a clean energy future.  Hands Across the Sand began in response to the massive and destructive BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in April 2010.  Right now in Australia, this same irresponsible company is proposing to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight, one of the world’s most important whale breeding grounds and a haven for a range of other species, 85% of which survive nowhere else on Earth. Modelling has shown that should an oil spill happen here, the consequences would be catastrophic and could certainly affect our vibrant coastal communities, including the North-West coast of Tasmania.

 

In Tasmania, we have some of the cleanest and most spectacular coastlines anywhere in the world, and as an island, we rely upon the clean coastal waters for our economy,  health and lifestyle. So what can you do to help protect this?

Come along to Hands Across the Sand, for a fun day at the beach, and add your voice to the call to shift to clean, renewable energy and a safer and fairer future for us all.
