Victory for Australia’s Sharks!

EPA Shuts Down Shark Cull Program; Agrees Shark Cull is Environmentally Unacceptable

Drum lines will not be deployed off Western Australia (WA) beaches this summer after the state’s Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) advised against extending the government’s controversial catch-and-kill shark policy.

The regulator’s chairman, Paul Vogel said the available information and evidence do not provide the organization with a high level of confidence.

Premier Colin Barnett said the recommendation meant that drum lines would not be in place off the WA coast this summer.

Sea Shepherd Australia’s WA Shark Campaigner, Natalie Banks stated, “This is a tremendous victory for the people that understand the vital and important role sharks play in the health of our oceans. Finally their voices have been heard all over the globe.”

The WA shark cull caught a total of 172 sharks over the three-month trial, with the majority of these being tiger sharks. 50 tiger sharks of breeding size (mostly female) were shot and dumped out to sea. Tiger sharks only reproduce every few years and only a small number of their pups survive to maturity. The majority of the so-called “alive-released” sharks were in such a poor state that their chances of survival were slim to none. The WA Government had applied for a three-year extension of the cull.

Sea Shepherd Australia is now urging the Honorable Greg Hunt, Federal Environment Minister, to listen to the public and to listen to the science and put forth shark mitigation strategies that protect human safety without killing marine life. source

guys this is such amazing news! it’s terrible that so many innocent and ecologically important lives were lost in the very barbaric and pointless cull but the fact that it won’t continue at this point, is beyond amazing.

About Me

Sharks have inhabited our planet for 450 million years, since before the time of dinosaurs. If, in some small way, we are able to help people understand the vital role sharks play in ecosystems and the impact this has on all species, including humans, and also to dispel the myth that sharks are ruthless man-eaters, then we will have done a good thing.
