The W.A government is overriding a protection order against these apex predators. It has been shown through study that removing or reducing any apex predator in their environment will drastically affect the whole ecosystem for ever. The great white was offered protection due to its vulnerability. its numbers have slowly started to grow again and now the W.A government wants to outright kill them, if they are seen as a possible threat. Most people and their families who have been involved in a shark attack DO NOT want the shark to suffer as a consequence. Wake up W.A, this is not aceptable.
Ther Great white shark is protected internationally through a number of mechanisms. The white shark is listed on Appendix II of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Fauna and Flora (CITES) and also on Appendices I and II of the Convention on Migratory Species (CMS). These conventions limit trade and help reduce the number of sharks killed through commercial and recreational fishing activities.

      I love sharks. I was born on the coast and my love for the water and the animals in it has not faded. These animals deserve the right to live unharmed. Sharks migrate constantly, so killing them will not lessen attacks.

      Leave the oceans sharks alone, not just the Great White-all of them! They are certainly facing extension in the next 10 year's if the senseless killing does not stop. Research instead, tag sharks, protect them for they are vitally important to the ecosystem. Make a positive change, away with the barbaric, torture, cruelty and murder of these vitally important, wonderful apex predators!
