BP Vs the Great Australian Bight Alliance

We all view the Great Australian Bight as one of Australia’s great natural landmarks of the South. Yet major oil company BP have seen it as its next hope in search for oil. BP aims to drill four exploration wells of up to 2.5 kilometres deep off South Australia’s coast, however National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environment Management Authority (NOPSEMA) has knocked back the oil giant’s latest plan. This leaves the question as to who truly owns our landmarks and what potential dangers could be faceing it’s marine life and their surrounding environment.
