…Woodside’s studies on the marine environment off Price’s Point are nothing but a travesty. They have undertaken practices that are not just un-scientific, but possibly Fraudulent, see below. The Land based portion is apparently NO different, after all, they could not find bilbies. There is no mention of echidnas either…
Here is another reason why the LNG Processing hub SHOULD NOT BE AT JAMES PRICE POINT
Woodside’s turtle report here: Report Master Template
Turtle numbers appear to be way under counted, I saw over 1000 on just 1 beach on 1 night, this survey was probably not done November/December, see this from a person who attended the survey:
In 2 trips to Lacepede Islands , total 20 days, we tagged about 8 turtles, they refused to count turtles in the water ? Study at JPP, was the same, very flawed, should be investigated.
Woodside claim most whales are outside 8 km from the shoreline and outside the 30km radius. THATS BULLSHIT when i was working on the boats off JPP for Woodside , they said only log a whale sighting if they swim across the path of the vessel within 200m, so when they swim beside the boat they dont count, one day we counted 32 whales between cable beach and JPP, they logged only 2 sighted for the day, how wrong ?
Whale Research from the shore in Broome is still ongoing:
Exciting Volunteer opportunity to Help Save Kimberley Whales!
There is a gap in Humpback whale research close to shore near Broome, as no such suvrvey has been undertaken from land before.
Broome locals and French scientist Sandra Saulnier have teamed together to survey Humpbacks daily from a land-based view point just north of Broome.
Due to the sheer number of whales on the Kimberley coast, and the ongoing success of the project, the Wilderness Society is recruiting more volunteers to support this important citizen science project!…
