This is an extra “out take” episode from my interview with Lyndon Schneiders.
At the end of our conversation, we started talking about one particular campaign that Lyndon was involved with at the Wilderness Society. This is the campaign to keep big oil out of the Great Australian Bight.
Lyndon explains the thinking behind the campaign's initial success to keep BP from starting drilling.
When we recorded the interview, we talked about the latest phase of the campaign which was focused on stopping the Norwegian state owned company Equinor from its exploration attempts.
The great news is that Equinor has pulled out, after the Wilderness Society, together with its alliance partners, mounted court proceedings to challenge the company’s approval to drill in the Bight. This was such a big win for nature.
