A new Fisheries Minister appointed - keep the pressure on!
Thanks to everyone for their support thus far, together we have a real chance to stop the proposed WA shark cull before it starts.
After Labor resoundingly won the WA state election, Premier Mark McGowan has reshuffled his cabinet. Minster Tinley who was "broadly supportive" of the proposal to intentionally reduce shark populations in the North West, at the request of recreational fishermen, is no longer the Fisheries Minister. The new Minister for that portfolio is Don Punch.
Hopefully, Minister Punch sees how irresponsible and dangerous this program would be and swiftly pulls the pin on this proposal. PLEASE keep sharing this petition as we need a whole new wave of support, to send a message to the new Minister loud and clear, that this is not OK.
