Greens MLC to table petition calling for halt to shark cull

Media statement, Wednesday, 11 December, 2013. 

Today Greens MLC Ms Lynn MacLaren will table close to 400 signatures as an urgent response to the Premier’s recent announcement to cull Great White Sharks through drum-lines dropped at popular South-West beaches. 

“This is a clear sign that the community is building opposition to the Premier’s decision to begin killing-off an endangered species once it has been caught on these baited drum-lines”. 

“I anticipate more action to come in the summer, the community will campaign against this decision”. 

Ms MacLaren will be on the steps of Parliament at 11:30am to receive the petition from the Wilderness Society.
