The River Nairn Swans and Waterfowl Trust is opposed to the Cromarty Port Authority plans for Ship to Ship oil Transfers in the Moray Firth. 

This would be directly opposite Nairn causing pollution and an ever present danger to our coastline. Most locals will know that during the Summer the breeze comes across from Cromarty and carries diesel fumes and Noise from the ships anchored outside the Cromarty entrance. If the Cromarty Port Authority get their way, there will be a huge increase in anchored shipping and the additional threat pumping oil from one ship to another. 

The polluted ballast from their tanks will also create more pollution threats.

The last thing Nairn needs is contaminated beaches which already suffer from sewage pollution right now ! There will be a public meeting this Friday at 7pm in the Community centre, we would urge as many people as possible to attend and show your support for the organisations opposing this plan.
