This is an urgent appeal for your help.

From WWF

One of Australia's biggest environmental disasters is unfolding off Western Australia's pristine Kimberley cost and WWF needs your help urgently.

Since August 21, over 400 barrels of oil a day have been spewing into the ocean from the leaking Montara oil rig 250 kilometres off Broome.

The spill threatens countless marine species, including the Fraser's dolphin, up to 16,000 green and black turtles, 30,000 sea snakes, and numerous seabirds like the red-footed booby. There are serious concerns that the slick will hamper the feeding and breeding of marine animals and that many will die from ingesting the oil. Vital fisheries and coral spawning are also likely to be affected
