WESTERNPORT.. IT’S WORTH SAVING
The bay has been regenerating beautifully since we defeated aluminium smelters, bitumen plants, container terminals and all the rest. Save Westernport has spent the last three years showing AGL just how much Westernport communities care about their bay. Still, AGL chooses not to listen.
Westernport is home to unique RAMSAR listed wetlands, seagrasses and mangroves which support the fragile ecologies where rare wading birds and marine life breed. Failure to protect these precious ecological systems will threaten all life in Westernport and beyond.
