Unbelievably, risky deep-sea oil drilling is still an imminent threat to the Great Australian Bight and the coastal communities who depend on it.




You are invited to a community launch and screening of the documentary Operation Jeedara, where you can find out more about the campaign to protect the Great Australian Bight from Big Oil. Entry is free.

The Wilderness Society has been campaigning closely with Sea Shepherd as a part of the Great Australian Bight Alliance, which is a collective of local groups across southern Australia, Traditional Custodians and environmental advocacy organisations.


Operation Jeedara is a powerful film by Sea Shepherd documenting our fight to keep oil giants from risky deep sea oil drilling out in the deep pristine waters of the Great Australian Bight. This national campaign has been running since 2011 with some  inspiring victories along the way, like defeating oil giants BP and Chevron. It affects all of us that live along the coastline of Southern Australia and Western Victoria - read all about it here.

Operation Jeedara follows Sea Shepherd’s boat the 'Steve Irwin' sailing into the heart of the Great Australian Bight in 2016, documenting the beauty of the region and showcasing what is at stake if we let Big Oil companies drill there.


Operation Jeedara has won awards internationally and is narrated by Dr Bob Brown.

"Operation Jeedara showcases the Great Australian Bight and highlights what's actually at stake - a wilderness of global significance. From the Nuyts Reef, the Isles of St Francis, Pearson Island, areas around Kangaroo Island and the Coorong Coast, to the iconic Bunda Cliffs of the Nullarbor Plain, the Bight is an utterly inappropriate place for the oil industry."  Wilderness Society South Australia Director Peter Owen.


In our area, Aireys Inlet local, Tim Wood, has spoken out about his love for the coast and how he will fight for the Bight in this short video.


Together, we can save the Bight from risky deep sea oil drilling.
