*WA at a Glance

Actions:

We are an joining forces here working to educate the public and support community in protecting the unique environment and culture of the Kimberley. The Kimberley is one of the world’s last great wilderness areas and deserves real protection.

The Kimberley is currently under threat with a range of short-sighted industrial proposals threatening the sustainable tourism, Indigenous land management and pastoral future of the region. Most pressing is a proposal to build a massive LNG processing plant at James Price Point (JPP) 50km North of Broome.
The Kimberley Coast would suffer irreparable damage both environmentally and culturally under such a proposal with all its associated industrial impacts including shipping traffic, reef blasting, dredging and pollution – all in the breeding and nursery area for the worlds largest remaining population of Humpback whales.
The State Government has initiated compulsory acquisition of Indigenous land at James Price Point for the Woodside lead project in a move that has met with outrage across Australia and the world. Meanwhile the joint venture partners Shell, Chevron, BP and BHP continue to have reservations understanding that THERE ARE ALTERNATIVES – Browse basin gas could be:
1. Left in the ground, or
2. Piped to the Pilbara where there is established industrial infastructure, or
3. Processed via offshore floating technology under development.

Save the Kimberley does not oppose development. Save the Kimberley supports appropriate development that looks after people and the environment of the Kimberley.

THERE IS NO NEED TO PUT THE PRISTINE KIMBERLEY COAST AT RISK
