Recent research on Humpback whales is starting to reveal a serious deficiency in Woodside’s Environmental Assessment. They couldn’t see the whales for the dollar signs.
A majority of the tracks pass close to James price Point, where cliff watchers were counting numbers last year. This research is about to be released on the 28th March.
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.A project of West Australian Sea Turtle Satellite Tracking Project in conjunction with the partners and sponsors detailed below.The Lacepede Islands boasts one of the largest turtle rookeries in the world! Another rookery not mentioned a few kilometres to the north is Adele Island. See this too from a participant of the survey, again:
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 ?
