Ending Australia’s senseless shark culls
Sea Shepherd is working with the community to promote better solutions to preventing shark bite incidents
In early 2014, the Western Australian Government installed drum lines off the WA coastline to catch and kill large sharks. This misguided attempt to reduce the danger to people from shark bites attracted international condemnation.
Sea Shepherd has thrown its support behind the community, providing RIBs (rigid inflatable boats) in WA and Queensland, along with crew members to monitor, document, and expose the flawed policies currently in place within three Australian states; WA, QLD and NSW.
The public must be informed about the ineffectiveness of the current programs, the threat these actions pose to all marine life, and non-lethal measures to protect ocean users.
