Albert Wiggan, a young Indigenous leader and Bardi family man from the Kimberley, is passionate about ensuring that his children can maintain a strong connection to their traditional history and heritage - while simultaneously being able to survive and thrive as part of Western culture.
But Albert fears this will no longer be possible in light of a plan to build a huge gas factory at James Price Point on the Kimberley coast - a special place where Albert takes his sons to fish, hunt and learn about their Indigenous culture.
Many Indigenous leaders like Albert are fiercely opposed to the gas hub as it will threaten numerous Aboriginal heritage sites including part of a famous Indigenous 'songline' - a continuous dreaming track that has remained intact for thousands of years.
Albert has a vision for the Kimberley. He knows that the prosperity of Indigenous people cannot be dependant on destroying nature. He believes that, if preserved, this land can continue to empower and nourish Aboriginal people like his own young sons.
It is our responsibility to protect this special place from destruction at the hands of the oil and gas giants.

This development would be the world's second largest LNG refinery and pose a serious threat to the community, environment and culture of the area. If approved, this would be the first of many developments to eventually mine and industrialise the entire Kimberley Region, one of the world's last remaining wildernesses.
