Not So Cull

Description : "Not So Cull" (2023) By Elizabeth Solich, oil on canvas, recycled materials. This is one special work commissioned, recently completed. The aim of culling is to eradicate a host species, to prevent the pathogen entering and contaminating new individuals and populations. Already, many of the world’s largest animals such as sharks or whales, are at risk of extinction. Their population, especially in the wild, is dwindling at a very fast pace. These large species of animals have low reproduction rates and take very long to mature. So culling only hastens the process of extinction. For example, shark populations may take longer to recover after culls. Environmentalists have proposed the banning of shark culling and the use of drum lines because they are threats to endangered species.The beautiful Leatherback Turtle is yet another victim of the Australian shark cull. Drowning in sharks nets - which are literally just fishing nets) is their most common fate 🥹
