Taking a stand against drilling in the bight

SIX members of the Formby Bay Environmental Action Group joined forces with other members of the Great Australian Bight Alliance in Adelaide to take a stand against deep sea drilling in the bight last month.

The protest was the culmination of community events held during the past six months, including Hands Across the Sand at Berry Bay, to raise awareness about the risks involved in deep sea drilling.
