Great White Shark.
Keep Ban on Killing of Great White Sharks
- Target: Australia State Minister of Fisheries, Hon. Norman Frederick Moore
- Sponsored by: Animal Advocates
In Australia, great white sharks have been listed as “rare or likely to become extinct” and fishing or culling them has been banned since 1999.
After five swimmers have attacked over the last 12 months, local officials in Western Australia are considering ending the ban on the killing of great white sharks.
Since only about 100 great white sharks have ever been tagged or sampled in Australian waters, accurate information and futher studies should be conducted, based on sound science before killing great white sharks resumes.
The truth is, very little is known about them, or why there seem to be many in Australia right now. The population may not have increased very much at all- and more sharks might simply be present because there is a greater food supply- or perhaps there are just far more swimmers in the ocean, increasing a likelyhood of shark encounters.
While it is still unknown what brings great white sharks closer to the Australian shore at this time, precautions by swimmers, or even swimming bans may be more in order than killing the sharks. We ask Australia to keep the ban on the killing of great white sharks as they are a very important part of the ecosystem.

Thanks Nyack, Barbara and Betty!
Signed petition Nyack.
And here of late I've been so concerned about my hip and shoulder pain plus lately a pinched nerve making every step agony, but that all paled into insignificance.this morning. Part way through his brekky Fred started coughing, not a furball cough but a deep chesty cough, plus occasional heavy breathing which I can hear from one end of the house to the other. Just while typing this he made a brief retching noise. He's also got clingy, not like Fred,
Wonder if he ate something last night, I've had all kinds of wildlife invading my house this week - snakes, cane toads, ginormous spiders...
I live in the sticks and vets only visit monthly. Any ideas? Fred's my whole life.
Sorry to hear you and Fred are not feeling good. Feel bad that I can't help either of you. Hope you both get help for this.
Sorry George- I have no ideas other than to see a vet.
Impacted fur balls can do very strange things- from vomiting to refusing to eat- I give my cats furball remover regularlly to eliminate them (usually when they go to the bathroom).
But? It could be alot of things George- hopefully nothing serious. The good news is- that he is clingy- typically when cats are very sick, they isolate and try to hide.
