Image Gallery: Activists deliver sharks petition to NSW Premier (and a surfboard!)

Greenpeace activists today delivered a surfboard to NSW Premier Mike Baird covered with more than 25,000 signatures asking him to rule out shark deterrents that hook and kill marine life such as turtles and dolphins.

The surfboard petition calls on Premier Baird to rule out the use of lethal shark deterrents like so-called ‘smart drumlines’ in the state government’s shark management policy. The drumlines catch sharks with a hook suspended from a large plastic float anchored to the seabed; authorities are electronically alerted when an animal has been caught.
