The Government of Western Australia recently revealed an aggressive shark cull program. The program allows the government to set up baited drumlines with hooks off the coast of common beaches and kill threatened shark species, such as the protected great white shark.
Stand with organizations such as the Australian Marine Conservation Society, and urge the W.A. Government to abandon its shark cull program.

We, the undersigned, are concerned about your newly enacted shark cull program. There’s no proof your policy will reduce attacks; it makes endangered sharks vulnerable and could decimate their populations.
I stand with organizations such as the Australian Marine Conservation Society in urging you to abandon your shark cull program. Australia’s sharks need protection.
