Scott Reef is under threat from Woodside's monstrous Burrup Hub 

The movement against Woodside's Burrup Hub is growing in WA. Thousands of West Australians are taking action to stop Woodside's disastrous plans.

To amplify your efforts, The Scott Reef Alliance has been formed. Movement partners from WA and across the country are supporting West Aussies on the ground, fighting for the safety of Scott Reef and our climate.


4 reasons to reject Woodside's disastrous plans

  1. Scott Reef is one of Australia’s most amazing - and untouched - underwater wonders. It’s home to hundreds of species, including fish, sea snakes, sharks, rays and sawfish. It’s also a vital habitat for protected species, including endangered pygmy blue whales and green sea turtles.

  2. Woodside wants to drill up to 50 gas wells around Scott Reef. Some of the wells would be just over 2km from the reef itself. It wants to pump the gas to shore through a 900km long pipeline, running through two marine parks and straight past the Rowley Shoals, another of WA’s spectacular coral reefs.

  3. Woodside's safety record has been described by unions as 'diabolical'. If something went wrong, a well blowout could devastate Scott Reef - and the pollution could spread for hundreds of kilometres. 

  4. The gas Woodside wants to exploit is a dangerous fossil fuel that would be a climate bomb, adding 6.1 billion tonnes of emissions to the atmosphere - causing more deadly storms, floods, bushfires and heatwaves.
