Lit Review Sharks are some of the most feared predators by humans and of course my favorite animal. Their numbers are becoming dangerously close to extinction. The elimination of sharks would affect our entire ecosystem in ways we cannot even fathom. The biggest cause for the decline in shark population is shark fishing.

There’s a good chance that you have never heard about shark finning, not very many people have. “Finning is the inhumane practice of hacking off the shark's fins and throwing its still living body back into the sea. Unable to swim or pass water across its gills, the shark dies from suffocation, blood loss or predation by other species.” (Kelly 2003) You might be wondering why it should matter to you, it should matter to everyone since the shark is the most important equalizer of the sea.

Australian beaches are some of the best in the world and WA beaches are some of the best in Australia. But this may soon no longer be a view held by everyone if the WA government continues to support and allow the shark culling off Perth's major beaches. Hi I'm Maya Koentgen, a marine biologist, ecologist and fellow beach user, and I'm here to tell you why shark culling needs to stop.
