STOP WA from culling sharks!!!

Recommended Posts

Western Australia's Fisheries Minister, Troy Buswell, has warned a soon-to-be-unveiled shark policy will upset some people in the community.

 

Today at 10am Western Australian time the WA Government will announce it's a new, potentially "draconian" shark policy. Already kill orders on sharks sighted too close to shore have been issued, so just how much stricter can we get?

Please help the WASC fight this. Thank you for your support

Sadly, WA government has issued an order to kill sharks yesterday :)

Culling the sharks is not a solution. The "strategy" of using baited drum lines, IMHO, is the most ridiculous idea. Why would they want to lure the sharks nearer to shore and kill them? Isn't it a crime to deliberately kill the Great White, a protected species? Is Colin Barnett guilty of a criminal offense? And also culling the larger sharks; >3m will decimated the shark species and cause an increase in pinnipeds. By then, will there be another kill order to cull the seals?? Can they even imagine how many other marine animals will be trapped and killed??

We need International pressure to get the order to be eradicated. Pls continue to sign and share this petition:

The petition is still open. Apart from signing it, the link also gives a good description of reasons why the strategy makes no rational sense in addition to all the other objections to killing a majestic and already endangered creature.
