Conservation Council of WA Launches Margaret River Oil Appeal

The new Margaret River Oil Lease has upped the ante on the need to protect WA’s Southwest marine life in a network of marine sancturies.  Currently less than 1% of the southwest marine environment is protected; with upto 90% unique marine life and half the worlds whale and dolphin species using the region, 1% is not enough.

The Consevation Council of WA has launched an appeal to help raise the funds needed to fight for marine sanctuaries, not oil, for WA’s unique southwest environment.
