URGENT ACTION REQUIRED TO PROTECT AUSTRALIAN GREY NURSE SHARKS
Incredibly in April this year, the New South Wales Government decreased protection for the critically endangered grey nurse shark and opened up some of this gentle cruiser’s critical habitat areas to recreational fishing.
And right now, the NSW Government is considering where to go next with grey nurse shark conservation. They need to hear it shouted from the rooftops that these threatened creatures need the greatest protection possible. They need to be told to increase, not decrease safeguards for this species.
Please help the NSW Government write the chapter that ensures grey nurse sharks live happily ever after - take a few moments to send in a submission telling them to ensure NSW becomes a safe haven for grey nurse sharks. We only have until Friday 26th August to make a public comment.
We envision a world without shark finning.
We envision a world where human practices demonstrate an understanding of and respect for marine ecosystems and their preservation while gaining sustenance for human beings.
We think forward to a time when people will see our connection to the shark and the importance of creating a healthy, balanced marine ecosystem for both the species within it and for ourselves.
We imagine generations ahead enjoying the abundance of resources and beauty of the oceans.
At Majestic Aquariums, we believe it is vital to protect marine species from human activities which threaten their survival and stop shark finning. Show your support by signing the Australian Marine Conservation Society’s petition to the Minister for Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities, Hon Tony Burke MP. Use your voice to safeguard the future of Australian sharks and persuade our politicians to show global leadership on the issue of shark conservation.
