Stop the Slaughter in the Water

Tell the Government: Stop the Slaughter in the Water

    Stop the Slaughter in the Water

    Despite promising in the lead up to the 2023 state election to phase out shark nets in NSW, the Minns Labor government is once again overseeing the slaughter of hundreds of threatened marine animals - like turtles, dolphins, rays and sharks - off 51 beaches from Newcastle to Wollongong.

    Shark nets are not only deadly for marine life, they do nothing to keep people safe - in Sydney 80% of shark encounters occur at netted beaches. Even the community doesn’t want them, with coastal communities and local councils resoundingly rejecting these death traps.

    Some years, up to 90% or more of marine animals caught in nets are critically endangered grey nurse sharks, turtles, dolphins, seals, penguins and whales. 

    We have to act now to get the nets out and end the indiscriminate killing of our precious marine life once and for all.

    Tell Environment Minister Penny Sharpe and Minister Tara Moriarty to stop the slaughter! Alternatives exist that will better protect us as well as our precious marine life.
