Stop the mindless expansion of fossil fuels

Stop the mindless expansion of fossil fuels

From Ningaloo Reef to the Great Australian Bight, Channel Country and the Kimberley, Australia's oceans and unique landscapes are under threat from the expansion of fossil fuels. Destructive fossil fuel projects are still being forced on Australian communities—and we’re stuck with the consequences forever.  

For a safe climate and healthy oceans, Australia must stop new fossil fuel projects. The expert global International Energy Agency (IEA) announced in May 2021 that to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, there should be no new oil and gas exploration at all from 2021 onwards.

From Ningaloo Reef to the Great Australian Bight, Channel Country and the Kimberley, Australia's oceans and unique landscapes are under threat from the expansion of fossil fuels. Destructive fossil fuel projects are still being forced on Australian communities—and we’re stuck with the consequences forever.  

For a safe climate and healthy oceans, Australia must stop new fossil fuel projects. The expert global International Energy Agency (IEA) announced in May 2021 that to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, there should be no new oil and gas exploration at all from 2021 onwards. 

But year after year, Australian governments back the fossil fuel industry over community, by releasing swathes of ocean floor for oil and gas exploration, and providing public funding for new coal or gas—in some of Australia’s most biodiverse places, like the Kimberley or Channel Country.

Together, we can shine a spotlight on new acreage and ongoing funding for new fossil fuel exploration. Communities are saying no to fossil fuel developments, but governments are backing this climate-wrecking industry, over people and nature.

Will you add your name to the petition today to tell the next federal government that they must undertake key actions to protect iconic places like the Kimberley, Wollemi, or the Great Australian Bight, by:

  1. Ending the mindless release of oil and gas acreage in Australia’s oceans.

  2. Supporting the surrender of permits for oil and gas exploration in the oceans, creating more opportunities for marine protection, and.

  3. Stopping public financing of any new coal, gas or oil expansion and infrastructure across the continent.

Together, we’re here for nature, and protecting Australia’s amazing ecosystems on land and sea. It’s vital the next Australian government is, too. Add your name today.
