Okay, last picture of the Whitetip Reef! I just really love them. T. obesus is believed to reach maturity around 3.5 feet long and can reach maximum lengths of a little over 5 feet. 
Not as bad as it looks… by BarryFackler on Flickr.

Hello! Just a heads up that the Western Australia Shark Cull is still on-going! WA’s state government has proposed to extend their catch-and-kill policies to national authorities, in which EPA (Environmenal Protection Agency) is currently reviewing.
Sharks are an important part of our environment and are extremely crucial to the ocean’s ecosystems! Please spread the word that this is STILL on-going, it’s not over yet, and we need to stop them!
Here are some things you can do to help!
Petitions You Can Sign:
i. / ii. / iii. / iv.
What you can do:
i. Write to WA government officials! Let them know that you are displeased with the cull and express your concerns! If you aren’t from Australia, send them an email anyways—state that you will not visit Australia or will have no interest in doing so until they lift the ban. 
WA believes that the shark cull will not deter people from visiting—in fact, they believe that it will encourage more people to visit! Let them know that this is not true!
People you can write to:
The Honorable Colin James Barnett, Premier of Western Australia
 24th Floor, Governor Stirling Tower
197 St Georges Terrace
Perth, WA 6000
Australia
Telephone: +61 8 6552-5000 / Fax: (08) 6552-5001
Email: wa-government@dpc.wa.gov.au
-
The Honorable W. R. Marmion, Minister for Environment
29th Floor, Allendale
Perth, WA 6000
Australia
Telephone: +61 8 6552-6800 / Fax: (08) 6552-6801
e-Mail: Minister.Marmion@dpc.wa.gov.au
-
ii. Educate yourself and others! Not a lot of people are aware of this issue as they should be—if people side with the issue, don’t be angry with them! Ask why, they’re most likely misinformed and unaware that sharks aren’t actually that dangerous to humans! Hopefully they will listen and agree with you then.
That’s all I have for now, I think! If you have any other recommendations or suggestions, please feel free to add on! Thanks for reading!
