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.

Happy Holidays Everyone!
WOW! The Holidays are almost upon us—that happened quickly! And what a year… SO many twists and turns in the tale of our battle to protect this beautiful, rich Westernport environment from the harm of irresponsible and unnecessary development. It’s head spinning, and you definitely know you’re alive! Continue reading “Save Westernport Wishes You A Safe and Happy New Year”
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…

In the last few weeks we have seen the transformation of the Woolley’s Beach jetty and the land around it.
