I am petitioning Tony Abbott, because i believe he can introduce laws and stop this.

Dear Mr Abbott, We believe that shark culling and slaughtering is a very important issue. We also believe that you are in a position to take action to address this issue. We demand that you take action against shark slaughtering in Australia and hopefully by setting the example we will have a global reaction to the slaughtering of this great species. By helping us you could introduce laws in Western Australia against the slaughtering of sharks and bring in penalties for people that kill sharks and dump them back into the ocean. Many people are unaware of the greatly decreasing populations of sharks all around the globe because of slaughtering and finning of these species. The shark species is decreasing smaller and smaller in numbers every day. In the last 50 years, the slaughter of sharks has risen by 400% and by 2017 it is anticipated that 20 species of sharks could become extinct. For our ecosystem it is extremely important for us to conserve the shark species and to not destroy their population. Sharks are often the apex predator in the ocean which means that they keep the ecosystem balanced an allow populations of other creatures to maintain healthy levels. As our oceans cover over 70% of the earth’s surface and inhabits 80% of life on earth, maintaining the ecosystem is critical to life on earth. Sharks regulate the quantity and health of other marine life, helping to keep fish quantities in the ocean healthy. Your leadership will be judged on its ability to take action against this problem. The eyes of the world are watching! Obviously it is time that action is taken to take control of this. We ask that you use your powers to help us stop the slaughtering of sharks. This will help the country and even globally for our eco system. In addition, by helping us with this global problem you would show the world that you can actually help and make a big impact and make the world a better place, you will in turn save a huge part of our eco system that will affect us greatly. We trust that you will act promptly on this matter. Yours sincerely, Guy Adams
