Created by Green Collar Productions in support of community group, Save Westernport. These mangroves are an essential ecosystem providing carbon sequestration, coastal stabilisation and home to at least 30 species of migratory birds. They are culturally significant and are considered a Ramsar listed wetlands and UNESCO Biosphere reserve. AGL is threatening this habitat and our community by proposing to moor a 17 storey, 300m regasification factory in our bay, within this wetlands. It could be moored for 20 years. These mangroves are located approximately 1km from where I grew up, spent time as a child and learnt about nature. This is where I continue to spend time as an adult. Because these mangroves cannot speak, I decided to make a film about them to show how precious they are.
AGL CEO Brett Redman is in Melbourne on 12 June to speak at the Energy Week Conference so Environment Victoria and Save Westernport have taken the opportunity to ask him to meet us and receive our petition of approximately 15,000 signatures. Brett says one of his top three strategic goals for this year is social licence. He’s busy talking about it all around the country so get on the bus with us to let him know that he absolutely has not got social licence for this damaging proposal. Make sure he gets a strong message that Westernport communities remain defiant and strong in our opposition.
It’s just a few hours of your day and you might be that one extra person that makes all the difference. Don’t think one voice doesn’t count. The only way to change things is to turn up. (besides we’ll have a good time on the bus to and from Melbourne meeting each other and sharing experiences and knowledge.)
Look forward to seeing you.

PS. If you haven’t already signed the petition, do it now!

You have until 5:00pm on Wednesday 24 October 2018 to email submissions against the AGL Gas Import Jetty Project and APA Crib Point to Pakenham Gas Pipeline.
What Is Happening and Why Is It Urgent?
Both APA and AGL have referred their projects for approval to the federal government under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act of 1999 (the EPBC). Based upon these referrals, and public comments and objections, the government will decide whether no further study is necessary (thereby giving the projects the go-ahead), or decide that significantly more study needs to be done before the projects can proceed.
Just received from the Minister’s office… more updates soon. This is a huge win. It’s the deferral to EES we’ve been waiting for. You can see the release on the Premier’s site, or read our copy here…
A bus full of Westernport residents were determined to make their opposition known to AGL’s gas import plans. They travelled to Southbank on Wednesday, September 26th to join Environment Victoria and Friends of the Earth in protest outside the AGL Annual General Meeting at the Melbourne Recital Centre
Watch as Environment Victoria’s CEO, Mark Wakeham, speaks out against the destructive impact of AGL’s planned FSRU project at Crib Point. He talks about the obvious negative impact of the project, as well as the lack of economic justification for such a project.
