Nets Out Now + No Shark Cull Campaign Update - Month 106

Since the 1930’s, sharks have been targeted and killed by government-run shark culling programs to “protect” beaches in Australia. These have operated in New South Wales (NSW) since 1937, and Queensland (QLD) since 1962. In this time, almost 70 shark bite incidents, including 3 fatalities, have occurred at so-called “protected” beaches. Western Australia's (WA) culling trial in 2014 is the first time mass outrage was sparked about this approach. It was the first time a serious campaign started against these practices. The WA cull has long since ended, but NSW and QLD culls continue.
