I will say this after having lived in Oz for 6 months of my life.....

Aussies are some of the most conservation/nature minded people I have met. They often put taking care of the envirnement ahead of most of what they do.

They are also a very passionate people. I had a girl there love me more than anything.

I can understand their fear and anger about an increase in shark attacks, but lets face it, your in the ocean, your at the bottom of the food chain when you paddle a board out into known great white waters.

i see it as the increase in attacks show that the conservation of these animals has worked by increasing their numbers. more sharks + more people in the water than before due to population growth and increase in affordable water sport activities (kayaking, paddleboard, scuba, surfing, wind surfing, etc)= more contact with the sharks.

Is killing them the right thing to do because they come "too close to the beach" no, its the wrong thing to do. if your that conceered about becoming a tastey treat for a fish than stay out of the water.
