Shark nets are indiscriminate, outdated and ineffective. They have been installed at New South Wales beaches since the 1930s, killing hundreds of marine animals every year for nearly a century. They do not provide protection, but instead a false sense of security. Send this letter to tell the NSW Government to ditch the nets for good and to continue investing in non-lethal alternatives. Let's end the slaughter of dolphins, turtles, sharks, and rays.
