New dolphin for James Price Point suggests inadequate environmental impact assessment: scientist
Robert Mailer and Ben Collins
Dr Simon Allen says confirmation of a dwarf dolphin not previously recorded in waters off the site for a controversial gas precinct demonstrates that the State Government’s environmental impact assessment is sub-standard.
The dolphin researcher is part of Murdoch University’s Cetacean Research Centre which last year made a public submission criticising the Department of State Development’s Browse LNG Precinct Strategic Assessment Report on impacts a planned gas processing precinct would have on the marine environment.
