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?

Send an SOS: Save our Sanctuaries

In 2012, the Australian Government created the largest offshore network of marine sanctuaries in the world. 

But now every sanctuary we secured is at risk. The Abbott Government has just announced a review into these protected areas. 

This ignores the science, community support, consultation and over a decade of bipartisan support for marine sanctuaries.

It’s time to send an SOS to your MP.
