Off the beautiful beaches, and amongst the beautiful coral reefs of Australia - lurks a deadly, indiscriminate killer. It’s thirst for blood kills 1000’s per year. It lies in wait for innocent victims to swim right into its mouth. It’s not sharks, it’s the Government Shark Control program.

The Queensland and New South Wales Government’s shark control programs use tactics and methods first established in the 1930s, such as Baited Drumlining and Shark Netting, in a vain attempt to protect swimmers and surfers. These archaic methods have been scientifically proven to pose a huge risk to not only sharks, a species under great threat, but also to other marine life, and even horrifically the swimmers and surfers they are intended to protect.
