NEWS DESK All aboard for Bight fight

Students reap rewards for being tidy

DESPITE its lack of surf, Rye pier in Port Phillip was the beach of choice on Saturday for a board-based protest against plans by Norwegian oil-giant Equinor's to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight. One of the Mornington Peninsula’s organisers, Asha Bainbridge, estimated about 350 people were at Rye for the Fight for the Bight protest, one of 40 being held around Australia. Markus Tschech, of the Surfrider Foundation, said protesters were concerned about the irreversible consequences of an oil spill “not just on Australia’s southern coastline, but on the peninsula”. “Equinor’s own worst-case spill modelling shows a spill could have devastating impacts along the entire south coast of Australia, from Margaret River in Western Australia right around to Port Macquarie in New South Wwales, including Tasmania,” he said. “An oil spill could be catastrophic for local fisheries and towns on the peninsula that rely on our pristine beaches for tourism. “Even a minor spill could have irreversible consequences since 85 per cent of the species found in the Bight are found nowhere else on Earth.” Mr Tschech Equinor had twice failed to satisfy the regulator that it “can prevent and manage an oil spill, protect marine life and adequately consult if it is allowed to conduct deep-sea drilling in the Bight. The Fight for the Bight campaign by the Surfrider Foundation Australia and Great Australian Bight Alliance is supported by Maladiction Longboarders, the Wilderness Society, Patagonia and Sea Shepherd.

TAKING part in the Tidy Towns Sustainable Communities competition was a “really positive experience” for students at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Crib Point. The awards aim to “encourage, motivate and celebrate sustainability achievements of rural and regional communities across Australia”. Each year regional and state winners are announced between August and October. The school’s grade 3/4s Sea is my Best Friend project was a finalist in the Active Schools category. It aimed to teach and connect them to the local environment, Jacks and Woolleys Beaches and nature reserves. Students learned about Western Port Bay being a Ramsar site and its importance for migratory birds. They connected with conservation groups, including the Western Port Biosphere, and a puppeteer who taught them how to make puppets to tell stories. From this, walks down to the beach, classroom research, and using further information from rangers, they made puppets using recycled materials of the migratory shorebirds and produced videos with their puppets highlighting the importance of caring for and conserving the ecosystem. The Sustainability Team of grade 5/6 students won the Waste Management, Resource Recovery and Litter Management categories. They worked to improve the school’s waste management and resource recovery systems, and campaigned through the newsletter and assemblies to encourage behavioural change around the packaging of lunches with a “nude food” initiative.
