The White Shark Conservation Trust has been established to promote awareness of the need to conserve and protect the white shark, Carcharodon carcharias and to educate the public about the animal. This action was triggered by a personal desire of one of the Trustees who decided he could no longer remain an armchair environmentalist. The realisation of the absolute fragility of these creatures was brought home to Bruce Goorney on a life changing expedition to see the sharks first hand at the Neptune Islands in the Spencer Gulf, South Australia in January 2008.

THIS IS WHAT THE GOVERNMENT DOESN’T WANT YOU TO SEE.

Obtained by @envoy.film under a freedom of information application.

A manta caught as bycatch in shark nets at Australia’s most famous beach.

People travel from all over the world to visit our beaches, to see our diverse marine life, and little do they know, this is where Australia’s tax dollars are going — to a program that spouts it is designed to “protect beach goers” when in fact, it provides a false sense of security, while killing thousands of innocent animals.

The nets need to go. We so desperately need to follow the lead of other countries using non-lethal methods of bather protection.

At the end of the day, it really is their home. We are just visiting.

8 years ago “Freckles” shown here was a renowned A-Lister Leaper at the Neptune Islands, prone to surprising the most diligent of our spotters and many a frustrated photographer with explosive random breaches.

The Spring Season has traditionally proved to be a great time to witness natural predations at the Neptune Islands as this is the time that the seal pups born over the previous summer are first venturing further offshore away from the protection of the shallows and rock pools and into the patrol zone of Neptunes great white sharks.

This is also a time usually some of the clearest water of the year which delights our divers and underwater photographers.

Andrew Fox is hosting several more of our special new Adelaide- Adelaide departure itineraries this upcoming Spring season and will be make a special photography and research presentation while onboard.

This was exactly the kind of reaction we didn’t want to see happen. All this is doing is appealing to a political minority. This isn’t helping the situation at all. ... See MoreSee Less

Please please please help us spread the word - the petition to ban the import of shark fins in the UK only has a few days left to meet the deadline and goal of 100,000 signatures. This will actually cause the petition to be considered by the government to pass necessary legislation on closing the loophole that currently allows shark fin imports. There are two petitions (one for EU citizens and one for UK citizens). The UK petition is the most time sensitive at the moment, but both are equally important. You can find the details of both on my blog and directly through Shark Guardian & StopFinningEU - Thank you for helping in whatever manner you’re able; signing, sharing, calling friends/fam, etc. It’s appreciated! 💙💙💙
