Shark nets deadly toll.

To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of New South Wales in Parliament assembled:
This Petition of certain citizens of New South Wales brings to the attention of the House that:
Shark nets do not provide point-to-point protection for swimmers and surfers.
Shark nets kill all types of sharks, including endangered species. Shark nets also kill turtles, dolphins, stingrays and other marine life.
The undersigned petitioners ask the NSW Government to:
Stop shark nets from being placed off the beaches of the Ballina – Byron area
Fund non-lethal methods such as shark spotting
