Yes, the whale migration is happening on the east coast from the Southern Ocean. Yes, another whale passing the Gold Coast got trapped in a damn shark net. Thank goodness the whale is now free and didn’t drown like others have in the past (mainly calves).
Byron Shire refused to have these killing nets placed on their beaches – congratulations – you have saved numerous sea creatures from a miserable death.
When I started with Sea Shepherd I discovered that there are 40 beaches that are netted and baited with drum lines in estuaries on the Gold Coast and that they have been that way for 45 years.
Queensland, it’s time to get rid of these killing contraptions for the sake of all sea creatures – now.
