On the contrary, the editorial (Australian 29/1/14) in addressing the issue to readers or activists opposed to the cull, argues in support of the government’s actions. Ritchie begins his opinion piece by expressing concern over cull, highlighting the negative impacts it has on the ecosystem and the ocean’s food chain. Ritchie claims that sharks like many other predators, are “critical…

    shark culling policy in 2014 in response to the shark attack fatalities. The shark culling policy authorizes sharks larger than three metres, such as: the great white, bull and tiger sharks to be slaughtered. Sharks smaller than three metres would be liberated offshore.

Sharks shouldn’t be culled as the ocean is their home and…

Sharks have populated the earth for over four hundred million years and now, people want to remove them from our oceans [Williamson, 2015]. The introduction of shark culls will allow people to freely kill sharks in an unorthodox manner, threatening the lives of many shark species. Despite what the media depicts of them, most people do not know that sharks are vital when it comes to maintaining the ocean ecosystem and…
