The giant Scarborough gas project off the coast of Western Australia is one of the biggest fossil fuel projects proposed in Australia in recent years. Environmental groups are trying to stop the project, and others like it, through the courts, in a strategy that could change the way governments deal with fossil fuel projects. We get the lowdown from Rebekkah Markey-Towler from the University of Melbourne. Read more about Rebekkah's research here.
Also, the latest on the campaign to prevent environmental damage at Toondah Harbour in Queensland, a vital stopover for threatened shorebirds such as the critically endangered Eastern Curlew. We speak to Andrew Hunter from Birdlife Australia. Read about the campaign here.
