In response to BP’s plans to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight, in waters deeper and rougher than the Deepwater Horizon disaster, Sea Shepherd launches Operation Jeedara.
The Great Australian Bight is rich in beauty and biodiversity, boasting the worlds most significant southern right whale nursery, as well as humpback, sperm, blue and beaked whales. It is also Australia’s most important sea lion nursery and supports orcas, great white sharks, southern blue fin tuna and other fish down to the small pelagic.
Bunna Lawrie is the Mirning Elder and whalesong man of the Nullabor, Great Australian Bight. Bunna Lawrie speaks of the place in the poetry of a people who have lived at the edge of that frontier for maybe 50,000 years.
“I’m the whale song man from the Nullarbor on the Great Australian Bight, the Great Australian Bight is the greatest whale nursery on this planet. The whale story where I come from is my university, my school. It’s the place where our beautiful southern right whales come to calve their young, to teach their young to travel on the next journey. Whales like sperm whales, blue whales, pygmy blue whales, killer whales, humpback whales – they travel down there to honour that great journey, that song, that story of the great white whale Jeedara that is there now.” – Bunna Lawrie, Mirning Elder – whalesong man.
In honouring Bunna and the Mirning and the great white whale, with permission, Sea Shepherd have named their campaign Operation Jeedara, Sea Shepherd’s bight defence campaign as part of the Great Australian Bight Alliance.
