Stop killing sharks in the Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef, the largest living structure on our planet, is not a safe place for sharks.
Despite a landmark court victory in 2019 to end the lethal cull of sharks on the Great Barrier Reef, the Queensland Government has yet to appropriately implement the new court orders. This means sharks are still dying on drumlines in the Reef.
Since the 1960s, tens of thousands of sharks have been killed in the Shark Control Program. It was proven in court that culling does not protect swimmers and has a detrimental impact on the Reef’s ecosystem. Reef sharks, hammerhead sharks and other vulnerable species are being caught and killed in their own natural environment.
HSI and AMCS need your support as we fight for the lives of our sharks and the health of our Reef. We need you to send the strongest possible message to the Queensland Government to implement the court orders.
Please add your name below and tell the Ministers of Queensland to stop the slaughter. The Reef needs sharks.
