SEA SHEPHERD eco-warriors will be highlighting their campaign to prevent BP drilling for oil in the Great Australian Bight at an upcoming public event.
Promising stories, breathtaking imagery and eye opening footage from their Operation Jeedera campaign in the bight, as well as other issues, An Ocean Conversation is at the state theatre on August 31 and September 1.
Captain Peter Hammarstedt from the society’s Swedish arm, Australian managing director Jeff Hansen, and marine biologist Richard Fitzpatrick will be giving talks as well as photographer/filmmakers Eliza Muirhead and Tim Watters. Watters and Hanson are currently aboard the Sea Shepherd boat Steve Irwin off South Australia, along with former Greens leader Bob Brown.
“The ocean’s a big place, especially international waters and there’s a lot of illegal activity happening there. So that’s where we do a lot of work,” says Sea Shepherd volunteer Marina Hansen.
