Posted on September 4, 2012 by annabelle No Comments

Sea Shepherd’s “Steve Irwin” visited Broome in early August 2012 as part of Operation Kimberley Miinimbi to highlight the potential damage to the Breeding Stock D, or Group lV population of Humpback whales by the proposed LNG gas hub at James Price Point, north of Broome.

Led by ex Federal Senator Bob Brown, the vessel traveled between Broome and James Price point, demonstrating to visitors and locals the size of the whale population off the Kimberley coast.

Jeff Hansen, Director of the Sea Shepherd Australia said “The Sea Shepherd has a proud history of protecting whales in the Antarctic Whale Sanctuary. We’re eager to support the campaign against the gas processing plant at James Price Point as an important part of the whale habitat that stretches right along this part of the Dampier Peninsula.”
