Every time there is a shark attack debate around shark culling reignites. Australia has the largest number of shark attacks in the world, around 13 people have been attacked by sharks in the last 12 months, half of these occurred in Western Australia alone. But does that mean we should capture and kill great whites and tiger sharks in the hope it will bring down those numbers? Queensland currently has Australia’s largest shark cull, in 2014 nearly 700 marine animals were killed. Over 100 of those killed were dolphins, dugongs and turtles. Do you think that killing sharks is the answer to improving ocean safety or should we just leave them in peace?
