Hammerhead sharks are crucial to the health of our Great Barrier Reef, the jewel in Australia’s crown. Without sharks, food webs can become unstable and collapse. Each year, endangered scalloped hammerhead sharks are killed in their thousands throughout the Great Barrier Reef because of industrial-sized gillnets stretched out for up to 1.2km. Sign the online petition and tell the Queensland Government to remove industrial-sized gillnets from operating in the world-heritage listed Great Barrier Reef so that hammerhead sharks, and the Reef, have a fighting chance at survival.
