Who Are We?
No Gas Across the Bass was formed in 2020 when American company Conocophillips put in an application to seismic blast Tasmania's North West coast just 27km from the iconic King Island. Additionally the Australian Governments 2020 Oil and Gas acreage release opened up a large area of Tasmania's pristine oceans for exploration. This prompted concerned Tasmanians to start No Gas Across the Bass.
in 2021 Surfrider Foundation Tasmania was formed to provide support for No Gas Across the Bass in addition to other campaigns impacting our coastline.
Our Mission is to prevent further oil and gas exploration in waters adjacent the Tasmanian and Victorian coastline. To protect our coastline, our marine environment and our local industries such as Fishing and Tourism. We strive to keep the needs of local communities at the forefront of our campaign and provide a platform for concerns to be heard.
