Help save turtles, whales, dolphins & sharks

By : Humane Society International January 19, 2017 Category : Marine Wildlife

Disturbing statistics continue to show high numbers of marine animals killed in both NSW and Queensland shark culling programs, including multiple threatened species. Especially concerning are the capture and deaths of harmless critically endangered grey nurse sharks, whales, threatened loggerhead, green and hawksbill turtles, and dolphins and rays. Very few target species are caught in the nets.

Use the form below to email the NSW and Queensland Premiers and Federal Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg to ask that all lethal shark nets and drum lines be removed from NSW and Queensland beaches in favour of non-lethal wildlife friendly bather protection strategies. Let them know that you consider the death toll of threatened and harmless marine animals in the lethal shark nets and drum lines to be unacceptable. You can also write to them by mail at their postal addresses:

The Hon. Gladys Berejiklian MP
GPO Box 5341

PO Box 15185

Hon Josh Frydenberg MP
