The Great Barrier Reef, the largest living structure on our planet, is not a safe place for sharks.
The Queensland Government’s shark control program kills marine wildlife in the Great Barrier Reef on lethal drumlines. 19 species that survive hooking on the drumlines are shot. Since the 1960s, tens of thousands of sharks have been killed in this program. Reef sharks, hammerhead sharks and other vulnerable and harmless species are being inhumanely executed 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 about just how archaic this program is.
Please add your name below and tell the Ministers of Queensland to stop the slaughter. The Reef needs sharks.
