STOP THE SHARK CULL BY MAKING A SUBMISSION TO THE EPA TODAY!
13886 signatures (92%) towards our goal of 15000
The WA Government has commenced a brutal cull of endangered sharks using baited drum lines and firearms, but there is no scientific evidence that this would reduce the already very low risk of shark attack.
CCWA and others have referred the cull to the state’s powerful environmental watchdog and the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) is now calling for public comments to help them decide how to deal with the referral. The EPA has three choices:
- Allow the cull to continue
- Rule out the shark cull as environmentally unacceptable
- Require the government to undertake a full environmental impact assessment (which would require the cull to be suspended while it is undertaken)
