Disturbing statistics have been released showing an increase in marine species killed in the NSW shark control nets, including multiple threatened species. Especially concerning is the deaths of critically endangered grey nurse sharks, endangered green turtles, hawksbill turtles and dolphins, along with over 100 rays and 100 harmless sharks.
Use the form below to email new NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian and ask that all lethal shark nets are removed from NSW beaches in favour of non-lethal wildlife friendly bather protection strategies. Let her know that you consider the death toll of threatened and harmless marine species in the lethal shark nets to be unacceptable.
Watch the CH7 News report below featuring HSI’s Head of Campaigns, Nicola Beynon, to see the detrimental effects of shark nets and then send the email below to the Premier.
