John Butler Trio, Missy Higgins, Ball Park Music Play Concert For The Kimberley

Australian music icons , , and special guest, Sea Shepherd Director Bob Brown, are standing together with The Wilderness Society to protect the Kimberly.

The Free open-air CONCERT FOR THE KIMBERLY will be held at 1.30pm at the Fremantle Esplanade on February 24, and will feature a protest march through the town.

“This concert and rally is a call to arms for all West Australians to stand up and protect one of our finest national treasures, The Kimberly,” said John Butler.

The spectacular wilderness of the Kimberley’s James Price Point is under threat by oil and gas giants Woodside, Shell, PetroChina, BP, Mitsubishi and Mitsui, who plan to build Australia’s biggest industrial development, a needless destruction of something too precious to lose forever.

The Kimberly coast is classed in the top 4% of the least untouched marine environments in the world alongside the Arctic and Antarctic oceans. Its pristine waters are home to the world’s largest humpback whale nursery, and threatened dolphins, sea turtles and dugongs. The region is also a significant Indigenous heritage site, is home to the longest chain of dinosaur footprints on the planet, and has known populations of endangered Bilby.
