A big crowd turned up on Friday evening at The Glen Cowans Photo Gallery and Fremantle Roundhouse for the PROTECT NINGALOO fundraising event.

Many artists have donated their works which are on the walls of the gallery, so go and have a look on the weekend. There are some really great works there!

There were some speeches and music, drinks and a lovely sunset.

It was good to have the fight for the protection of a national nature heritage area in the oldest public building in WA, and it is all about stopping the ridiculous plan to build a 500 hectare gas pipe launch plant at Heron Point and tugs dragging huge steel pipes across the nursery flats of the Ningaloo Marine Park.

That madness needs to be stopped because Ningaloo Reef’s health cannot be jeopardised!

    A fantastic evening, made extra special by having access to the beautiful Roundhouse gaol for speeches and formalities. Tickets to this event were sold out and everyone who attended loved viewing the Ningaloo art and photography alongside Glen Cowans’ captivating ocean images. A very special event made possible by very special people. Thank you to Roel and the Roundhouse volunteer guides for supporting this event and the incredibly important campaign to protect Ningaloo’s Nursery – Exmouth Gulf.

    Was a wonderful turnout and a huge night.

    Thanks so much for your efforts Roel.

    I think we can all consider it a huge success, now we all just have to convince the rest of the world that to allow one industrial site in would be the thin end of the wedge and before long we would end up with a Ningaloo version of Kwinana which would ultimately be placing the stresses of industry into a pristine area of marine nursery. It is sheer insanity for the quick dollar over nature.
