Protect our hammerhead sharks

Globally, shark populations are in decline and many species are threatened, largely due to fishing pressure and other human impacts.

This includes three species of hammerheads killed in Australian fisheries - the great hammerhead, the scalloped hammerhead and the smooth hammerhead.

These species were recently listed under the CITES international convention meaning that their trade must be controlled to protect them. However, just when the Australian Government should be banning trade in these threatened sharks, it is instead moving to allow blanket export.

Please add your name to the submission below, to the proposal to declare a blanket Wildlife Trade Operation (WTO) export for great, scalloped and smooth hammerhead sharks.
