Be shark smart.

Be shark smart with Shark Spotters and know when it is safe to swim and when it is not.
We love sharing the ocean with all it’s beautiful marine life and need to know how to respect it.
Our second tip is very important: If you can not see what’s in the water, what’s in the water won’t “see” you! πŸ‘€πŸŠβ€β™€οΈπŸ„β€β™‚οΈπŸ€Ώ
White sharks are primarily visual hunters which would normally allow them to correctly distinguish you from their preferred prey species. Try and avoid entering the ocean when it is murky, during darkness or twilight hours πŸŒ… when sharks rely on their other senses to locate potential prey rather than their vision.
And yes like sharks 🦈, we too depend on our vision πŸ‘€, especially to determine if there are any threats around us ⚠️. In these conditions you will not be able to spot things that could increase shark activity such as schools of fish 🚸🐟 or whale carcasses .
So as the old age saying goes “seeing is believing” and we should always “see” that we are safe before entering the ocean.
Please reshare to spread the #BeSharkSmart messages all across Mzansi and other areas too!
