How do political parties score on the WA shark cull?
Humane Society International (HSI) has today released a report card providing a list of all the political parties who support an end to the shark cull in Western Australia, in advance of the WA Senate election on 5th April.
“It is clear from the responses that political parties recognise the strong views of the community and are clearly reflecting these views in their rejection of the WA shark cull policy,” said HSI’s Michael Kennedy. “Perhaps unsurprisingly, HSI has received no responses from any political party that indicates that they support the WA shark cull.”
“HSI hopes that the Senators appointed as a result of the April election will be strong advocates in the Federal Parliament for shark conservation, and we look forward to promotion of non-lethal protection measures for ocean users not only in WA, but around Australia,” concluded Mr Kennedy.
The report card is attached and available on our website at www.hsi.org.au. It was prepared by contacting each political party directly to seek their views.
