Help us STOP plans to industrialise Exmouth Gulf!


Exmouth Gulf is one of the rare places left on the planet still bursting with wildlife. It’s a sanctuary for dugongs, a place where humpback whales nurse their newborn calves in its clean, quiet waters. The Gulf’s mangroves, seagrass meadows, corals and sponge gardens sustain countless other extraordinary species. But Exmouth Gulf is now threatened by industrial development.

A multinational oil and gas services company, Subsea 7, plans to construct a massive pipeline facility at Exmouth Gulf. They would assemble pipelines up to 10km long, launch them on a peaceful, undeveloped beach at Heron Point and drag hundreds of ballast chains across the seafloor, impacting an area up to 1000 football ovals in size. Subsea 7 would then tow these enormous pipelines through the beautiful Ningaloo World Heritage area and Marine Park.

Exmouth Gulf’s reputation as a world-class eco-tourism and research asset is growing. It sustains family businesses and will generate nature-based jobs and economic development for the long-term, but only if we stop it from being industrialised.

Scientific research confirms Exmouth Gulf’s status as a natural wonder of global importance. The Gulf is known as Ningaloo’s nursery and many species found on the Reef rely on the Gulf’s rich, biodiverse environment for their survival.

We need the WA and Federal Governments to take strong action for nature’s sake and for all the sustainable jobs that a healthy Exmouth Gulf and Ningaloo can support in the long-term if we take care of this precious ecosystem.

Please add your name to our letter asking Members of Parliament to step up for Exmouth Gulf, now.
