    Guys im not to sure who has been following the australian news but the jist of the matter is some politician is making very serious decisions regarding species of sharks that will effect the entire worlds oceans,

    Am i being dramatic? DEFINATLEY!!!.. the situation calls for it.. i for one feel we are hopelessly loosing the battle against rhino poaching dolphin hunting and soon shark polulations if we do not take a stand, we feel far to at peace in our comfort zones and many of us (myself included) prefer to be keyboard activists!!

    its time to start thinking of what we are going to be leaving for our children, the picture in my mind is looking very grim!

    so if you are at all interested try and stop this fool!

    stop Colin Barnett from robbing our childrens oceans of its sharks, Hes here in SA next month and id personally like to make him feel as unwelcome as possible!

    Wonder what is his justification?

    Too many sharks? Or too many people fooling around near sharks?
    I mean, you do not go walking around in a lion park and expect fuzzy little cats to hug.

    I will be as polite as possible: I hope he goes on a safari and get eaten by a lion!

    Do you know when he will be in Cape Town?

    Would love to have a chat with him!

    Shark Cull Protest!!! More information

    Hi there everyone! If you live in the Durban area and are up for a protest against the shark culling going on, please visit this link:
    https://www.facebook.com/events/654507734612513/

    It has all the details about whats happening on Sunday the 2nd of February.
    The WA government has started to cull the sharks, claiming that they are trying to protect tourists and locals from shark attacks meanwhile there have only been around 7 attacks in the past 3 years. Also note that the sharks migrate from South Africa to WA and visa versa which will in turn, affect our marine ecosystems drastically. I have also learned the way that these people inhumanly kill some of these animals is that they cut off the sharks fins and throw them back and leave them to drown. This isnt right!! So now we are taking a stand together at Chiefs Cabin in Clansthal to voice our opinions. We will be meeting at 10:00 on the 2nd of Feb, this Sunday.
    Bring yourselves and your signs so we can make a stand.
    Directions to Chiefs Cabin:
    From Durban:
    - N2 South Coast
    - take Scottburgh exit
    - Turn left going down towards the sea
    - At bottom of road, take left into R102
    - stay on R102 going north with sea on right side
    - Pass Crocworld on your left
    - Turn right into Clansthal
    - Immediate turn into Green point Lodge- Chief's Cabin
    See you there

    If there are any queries, please email me on shanrock@live.co.za
