The Australian Shark Propaganda: Why Culling the Great White Isn’t Necessary.

Din nin nin naaaa! (jaws music)Australia’s controversial plans to reduce the population of sharks in surrounding seas entails of very little thought and fear-mongering tactics.

The proposed cull is an attempt to protect beach-goers from potential attack, but is this a largely Jaws-inspired fear campaign that hasn’t been properly thought through?

Do sharks actually pose a threat to Australians?

Even though the Australian media constantly alarms the threat of shark attacks to swimmers and beach-dwellers, the figures never match the claim.

According to the Australian Shark Attack File (ASAF), sharks have killed 52 people in the past 50 years (so, roughly one per year) in Australian waters.

Considering how dramatic the increase in swimmers and the population has been in recent years, these statistics reflect that a threat is not posed by swimmers in THE SHARK’s water.

Only once has there ever been two shark-related deaths in Australia in the same year and the possibility of importance was unfounded.

Western Australia’s population > shark attack ratio is a major factor in proving that these supposedly “man-eating monsters” need to be maintained.

Maybe the shark-related deaths aren’t too high, but then again, in Western Australia alone an average of no more than 3 injuries are ever recorded.

The idea of “decreasing” fatalities is plain and simple. Take some cars off the road and naturally you will reduce the amount of road accidents. However, this doesn’t mean that people won’t be killed.

How do they actually cull sharks? A helicopter – fixed with a shark radar — hovers above the shark hotspots (and wherever the radar tells them to) and should the “culler” spot one, then a spear gun is used to fire a 17 inch spear into the back of its head.

This makes me question why the government would declare the great white shark (supposedly the main tyrant) a ‘vulnerable species’ and yet still insist on killing them off in order to maintain safer beaches. There has never been a recorded incident in the last 60 years of a shark intentionally swimming to shallow waters to attack an unsuspecting human.

In an interesting standpoint; estimates show that the average of bee-sting related DEATHS are much much higher on Earth than shark attacks.

Once more, researchers claim you are far more-likely to be killed by the weather than ripped to shreds by a six metre diamond-toothed shark.

So is Australia on a vengeance to kill sharks? And what do we do if it doesn’t bring the number of one death per year down to 0?

Screwing around with the ecosystem is never a good idea. I thought this country would have learned by now. I’m not some sort of Greenpeace hippy, but I think we should consider culling the humans, they’re far more destructive.

    Great post! I couldn’t agree more. I always wondered who comes up with the idea “lets kill 20 sharks as the solution of the “problem” Coconuts kill more people then sharks! we do not cull any coconut trees! Education is the key word here and I hope the next generation is reading posts like this.

    I agree whole-heartedly with the article. Seriously, this is why people refuse to pay for the media’s crap. You summarised everything in five posts and made me recognise I’m not alone in thinking that it’s a poorly thought-out idea.

    This is why I regret purchasing newspapers. Great story and without the fear tactics that we’re all getting daily
