Sadly the Great Barrier Reef is not a safe place for sharks.
The Queensland Government’s shark control program kills 26 species of sharks in the Great Barrier Reef on lethal drumlines. Any that survive hooking on the drumlines are shot. Since the 1960s, tens of thousands of sharks have been killed in this program. Reef sharks, hammerhead sharks and other vulnerable and harmless species are being inhumanely executed in their own natural environment.
HSI is preparing for a court case against the Queensland Government’s program in the Great Barrier Reef, but the sharks need you to keep up the public campaign telling the Queensland Government just how archaic this program is.
Please add your name below and tell the Ministers of Queensland to stop the slaughter. The Reef needs sharks.
