OCEAN - Great Ocean Rescue Tour - Opposing seismic blasting for oil and gas

The Otways Climate Emergency Action Network's (OCEAN’s) summer campaign to stop seismic blasting for oil and gas in the Otway Basin, off south west Victoria, kicks off this weekend.

We will be travelling the length of the Great Ocean Road visiting every town, starting at Ocean Grove on 6 January and finishing in Portland on the 27 January.

Various events will be held in each location, including film screenings, public rallies, street marches and paddle outs.

OCEAN’s objective is to alert visitors to the coast to the reality of seismic blasting and the devastating impact it is having on our marine life.

The first media event will be a massive street march in Ocean Grove and rally on the foreshore on Saturday 6 January.

“MOST RESEARCH SITES ARE BLEACHED DOWN TO SIX METRES” The Southern Great Barrier Reef has been cooked by an “underwater bushfire”, and the marine heatwave is causing coral reefs to bleach across the entire ecosystem.

There have been four mass coral bleaching events on the Great Barrier Reef in the past eight years - scientists tell us this kind of stress means species don’t have enough time to recover, fundamentally changing the reef and its biodiversity. The current marine heatwaves have caused swathes of the Southern Great Barrier reef to bleach, and the ominous marine forecasts for the coming weeks has almost the entire ecosystem in the highest alert level for another mass bleaching event. Climate pollution from burning fossil fuels is warming our planet, and with over 90% of atmospheric heat being absorbed by…
