The cultural significance of the footprints to the Goolarabooloo Traditional Custodians, as well as the scientific significance to palaeontologists everywhere, was apparently not enough to stop Woodside, the WA Government, and other Joint Venture Partners planning to build a LNG hub right on top of the trackway! They're going to destroy priceless fossils during the build, and haven't got an appropriate management plan in place if they find more fossils, only "if fossils are found, disturbance should be avoided wherever possible". Where possible. The most obvious escape clause ever written.
