Please reconsider your controversial new shark-mitigation program, which utilizes drum lines - baited hooks attached to floatation devices for the purpose of catching and killing sharks larger than 9 feet - in an attempt to control shark attacks. Not only does this method threaten the conservation of endangered sharks, but it also poses a deadly threat to other marine life, including dolphins, turtles and countless other species, endangered and otherwise. Instead, please redirect your resources toward ongoing research and support of non-lethal, non-threatening, effective methods to deter sharks from beaches and tourists, including visual, electrical and vibrational technologies. By doing so you can join the world in shark conservationism and become a part of the bigger picture of living in harmony with our beautiful planet.

By signing this petition we can show the Australian government that alternate technologies are available, effective and a far superior solution to destroying sharks and other endangered species. Our numbers will bring awareness that marine life off the coast of Australia isn't just theirs - it belongs to all of us, worldwide. By creating one voice for those who have no voices, we will not only set a precident for marine life, but for all of nature, endangered and otherwise.
