Save our threatened sharks

All around Australia, sharks are under pressure, killed from fear and loathing.

Sharks are majestic, misunderstood marine creatures that are critical to the health of our seas. Yet they are pointlessly destroyed by our own governments, with the logic of an age gone by - when the ocean was something to be tamed and controlled.

Please donate to save our threatened sharks, because if you and I don’t, who will?
