After several years of independent campaign work in Adelaide and with the communities surrounding the Great Australian Bight, a collection of local groups and environmental advocacy organisations came together to create the Great Australian Bight Alliance in January 2016. The founding members of the Alliance included Mirning Traditional Owners, Clean Bight Alliance Australia West Coast SA, Oil Free Seas Australia, Sea Shepherd Australia, Sea Shepherd Adelaide Chapter, Surfrider Foundation Australia and The Wilderness Society South Australia. Since then the Alliance has continued to grow.

Our vision for the Great Australian Bight is for a protected marine environment, where marine life is safe and healthy. Our unspoiled waters must be valued and celebrated. We cannot accept the risk of a catastrophic oil spill in our waters and along our coastline. Oil spills are irreversible.

Together, we can save the Bight from these risks.
