Angling Threat To South Africa's Great Whites

Dateline 17th February 2012.

21 years ago the world applauded when South Africa granted protection to the Great White shark. Soon after this the Great White established itself as a valuable economic asset in the Western Cape and its future seemed assured.

'Shark Champion' Lesley Rochat supported by Chris Fallows has now launched a campaign to protect the sharks against the growing threat of illegal angling. Lesley believes the authorities are failing to act effectively to stop the lawbreakers and ensure the sharks get the protection given to them 21 years ago.

Support Chris and Lesley’s efforts and sign the petition: WANTED! DEAD or ALIVE?
