Swims with Sharks to promote conservation of the endangered Tiger and Lemon Sharks

Sir Richard Branson Swim’s with Tiger sharks, Western Australia Kills

Premier of the State of Western Australia Colin Barnetts, murderous shark cull/killing policy and sanctioned by the minister for the Environment Greg Hunt, Western Australia is disgustingly killing the beautiful endangered Tiger Sharks.

We have just seen another three Tiger Sharks sickeningly caught with baited drum lines. The small Tiger Shark 2.2 metres (approx. 7ft) had been horrifically struggling for hours, sharks need to swim all the time to ventilate their gills. This Tiger shark along with the other two had hooks through their heads for hours. The other beautiful Tiger Sharks approx. 3 metres long, were shot a number of times, hung up by their noses then dumped out at sea.

Previously Western Australia have already dragged out and mercilessly shot and killed one other beautiful Tiger Shark, it was gutted and dumped out at sea. The smaller younger shark was dragged onto the deck, the hook was removed from her head using a knife. It appeared that the wound was already badly infected and then further injuries were caused by the knife to the head. The young shark after being man handled was thrown overboard and will now probably die.

There will be a possible legal challenge against the indiscriminate killing of Australia’s precious marine wildlife.

Valerie Taylor, with her late partner Ron, made a living out of filming sea life for 50 years, say’s “The Tiger Sharks she met, in all her experiences, had been pleasant, nice and gentle sharks“.
