Politicians Ignoring Science: A Shark Culling Example

Andrew Lewin | Ocean Conservation Action | 2 Comments
Sharks in Western Australia (WA) are a hot topic over the web, especially on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. There are numerous petitions going around trying to save the sharks in this part of the world...and it's not for finning...it's to protect them from being killed by Australian government contractors because, apparently, they pose a threat to humans...a less than 1% chance of attacking humans.

For most of you, I probably don't have to tell you that there are over 273 million sharks killed worldwide, which includes 100 million sharks dying for the ever so popular shark fin soup. Shark fin soup is not the only problem, a study estimating the number of shark deaths a year found that 1 in 15 sharks dies every year from fishing. That's a staggering number!
