The Western Australian (WA) government has issued a Great White Shark hunt to kill order after the tragic death of a surfer. The slaughter of a CITES protected species is not the answer.

In addition to this the WA government is considering the removal of Great White Shark protections in its waters which would open the door to uncontrolled slaughter of this magnificent animal.

Help The Australian Anti Shark Finning Alliance convince the WA government to end the Great White Shark slaughter & maintain its protected status.

      West Australian Fisheries Minister Norman Moore & Australian Federal Environment Minister Tony Burke could authorise a government sanctioned Great White Shark hunt as early as this Australian summer! We must act. We only need 100 more signatures.

      We need less than 400 signatures to reach our 5000 signature goal. Please encourage your friends and family to sign our petition. We simply can't afford to let the West Australian government threaten the existence of the Great White Shark species through culling and a conservation protection status review. Fins up shark lovers, We're almost there.

      Great White Sharks are magnificent creatures that should be treated with respect and play an important role in marine ecosystems. Their populations cannot sustain this senseless killing.

      Sharks are incredibly important species in marine ecosystems and culling them will through all those ecosystems out of balance. People should learn to live with sharks. Who are we to decide what should and shouldn't live? It is a disgrace that anyone would even think of culling a species or a range of species. People misunderstand the ocean, so what's out of sight is out of mind. If the same were to occur with a land species, the thought of culling would NEVER occur so why should the ocean be treated ANY differently to the land? Have a little respect for the powerful and incredibly resistent species in the seas. In fact have a little respect for all species.

      See no reason, it will change when all sharks have been culled, then we'll see oceans destroid.
