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!

WHALES AT BATHERS BEACH

Whales have returned to Fremantle’s Bathers Beach but this time as artworks and not to be slaughtered. In the 1800s the beach housed a Whaling Station and the still open Whalers Tunnel underneath the Roundhouse reminds us of that.

W.A. artist Sarah Wilkinson installed her Flukes artwork on the rocks near the South Mole as part of the Sculpture@Bathers show that will run till Sunday March 29.
