February 15, 2008, Newsletter Issue #242: Sharks

Tip of the Week

Sharks are responsible for more deaths in Australia than in any other country. Still, sharks have killed fewer than 100 people since the first recorded attack in 1791. Some of the world´s most dangerous shark species can be found in Australian waters. Great white, hammerhead, grey nurse and tiger sharks rarely attack without provocation, but nets are placed along much of the Australian coastline to reduce the odds further. Out beyond the breakers, the mesh netting suspended between buoys and anchors keeps the sharks at bay.
