Sea Shepherd Australia :: Operation Kimberley Miinimbi Update

Rae Price Sea Shepherd Conservation Society thank you so much for your support in keeping the Kimberley and James Price Point safe from destruction. If any of you would like to assist, please sign this petition to Minister Tony Burke to stop Woodside from disturbing ancient burial grounds in the dunes near James Price Point (Walmadany) without giving any rationale, and despite findings by a previous State Government that these sites must be protected for environmental and cultural heritage reasons

Operation Zero Tolerance and Kimberley Miinimbi Leader Bob Brown stated, "I have been to the sand dunes in question a number of times with members of the Goolarabooloo Aboriginal community who not only oppose the on-shore option but who are committed to physically oppose works there. They are justified in their opposition. This coast is not only alive with their Songlines (oral history and ongoing connection with country), but it is replete with Aboriginal sites such as middens, tool-making and burial sites. Some will be disturbed by the proposed exploratory works and face obliteration if the factory and attendant port with breakwater are constructed."
