Shark nets in Queensland's waters have caught 110+ whales since 2001 and several this season alone.
Queensland is the only place in the world that does not remove shark nets during whale migration season.
Fisheries Minister Mark Furner has the power to remove these shark nets.
The more people behind the movement, the sooner shark nets will be removed and whales protected.
Help convince politicians to take the next step and remove shark nets during the whale migration season. Add your name to the petition.
The verdict from scientists is clear - shark nets don't work. They give us a false sense of security and kill thousands of marine animals.
5 years ago, a Senate Committee recommended the phasing out of shark nets - but they are still in Queensland's waters.
Since 2001 over 17,000 marine life have been caught in Queensland's shark nets, including turtles, dolphins and dugongs. These innocent animals were left struggling for hours – many dying slow and agonising deaths.
You can help save countless marine lives from inhumane and ineffective nets. Add your name to the petition.
