Off the beautiful beaches, and amongst breathtaking coral reefs of Australia lurks a deadly and indiscriminate killer. Its thirst for blood kills 1000s each and every year. It lies in wait day after day for innocent victims to swim right into its mouth.
It’s not sharks.
It’s the Government Shark Control Program.
In Australia, the Queensland (QLD) and New South Wales (NSW) Governments shark control programs use tactics and methods first established in the 1930s. Baited drum lines and shark nets are vain attempts to protect swimmers and surfers.
The effectiveness of these archaic methods has been scientifically disproven. They not only pose a threat to sharks, a species under great threat, but also to a multitude of other marine life and even, horrifically, the swimmers and surfers they are intended to protect.
We have joined forces with Sea Shepherd, the Australian Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) and Humane Society International (HSI) to expose the deception perpetuated by the Queensland and New South Wales Governments.
Envoy: Shark Cull is a feature-length documentary which follows some of the biggest names in ocean conservation, such as Sea Shepherd, Ocean Ramsey and Madison Stewart. We will join these experts as they explore and expose this scarcely understood topic. We will also learn the importance of sharks in our oceans while uncovering the longest marine cull in history.
Additionally, we will be exploring:
More advanced, ecologically suitable and effective shark mitigation technologies available today
The historical failings of other states and countries
How you can help stop the cull
HOW TO WATCH
I would hate to not support a country I so love after living there for over 2 years. But it leaves a bad taste in my mouth to know the Australian Government is not doing whats best for its surrounding waters. Why would I want to live in and support a country that has a dead sea due to its own ignorance?
The documentary was amazing but just heartbreaking at the same time. My daughter and I
were disgusted that these barbaric acts are still happening in this day and age. Keep up the great work to stop this - we stand with you!
Brilliant doco very confronting and sad that this is actually happening in Australia. Growing up at the beaches in Adelaide we knew the risks of entering the water as kids. Now living in Melbourne with four adult kids we all spent loads of time at the beaches and highly respect all marine life. This just has to stop worldwide.
Amazing. This film needs to be part of school educational programs around ocean and environmental health.
After watching the film, 100% of those surveyed felt that the shark culling programs are harmful to wildlife,
and 0% believed they keep people safe.
