At the beginning of August, 2012, Fair Projects set sail with the crew of the Steve Irwin, as the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society traveled half way around Australia to descend upon Walmadan (also known as James Price Point) in Western Ausrtalia - the site of the worlds largest Humpback Whale nursery.
With Woodside proposing the construction of the second largest gas processing plant in the world at Walmadan, Sea Shepherd launched 'Operation Kimberley Miinimbi' in order to bring worldwide attention to the Kimberley coastline and show the world what we all stand to lose if the development goes ahead.
Throughout the campaign, Fair Projects documented activities on board, and today we are pleased to bring you the short film, 'Operation Kimberley Miinimbi'.
For Fair Projects, being involved with Operation Kimberley Miinimbi was an amazing experience. Through video production and photos we wanted to be able to show the rest of the world what the Kimberley look and felt like, in the hope that we could provide Sea Shepherd supporters with a better understanding of what we all stand to lose if this development goes ahead. We hope that the short film does justice to the pristine environment and wildlife of the Kimberley region, which is not only one of the most beautiful and untouched places on earth, but one of the most important for the Humpback whales that we share this planet with
