Just one surf club supported Australia's shark cull

No Great Whites have been caught in the cull

Just one local surf club supported Western Australia’s controversial shark cull The Australian Guardian has reported.

The newspaper was shown documents relating to the 23 stakeholders, including government departments and Surf Life Saving WA, consulted about the ban, which showed just one, The Margaret River boardriders club, supported all aspects of the proposed cull.

The Government records show 41 groups were consulted about the proposal in December 2013 and after a four-month freedom of information application process lawyers for Sea Shepherd were given documents relating to 23 organisations the charity believed would support the policy.
