This deliberate destruction of the marine ecosystem and the tormenting of marine life has to end, hence the reason for the Stop Seismic Testing campaign, now evolved in to the not-for profit Save Our Coast.
The Senate inquiry Hearing:
The huge community movement, and the incredible and moving Umina Beach (Central Coast) Save Our Coast Hands Across the Sand event (May 2019) where 1-2 thousand of us held hands for over 1.5km along the beach, in a huge display of community support for our campaign to stop seismic testing and save our coast, helped secure the federal Inquiry Hearing location at the Central Coast. (We had chosen Umina as it is in the middle of the PEP 11 zone and in a marginal electorate.)
Thank you to all who stood beside us to save our precious marine animals from the harm that is seismic testing, and helped secure the location of the Inquiry at the Central Coast.
We succeeded in stopping the further planned seismic testing off our coast, but while PEP 11 is still active, oil and gas companies can reinstate seismic testing at any time.
