Surfers and sharks

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Letters -

I read a lot about the on­go­ing is­sues with the sharks from the var­i­ous surf­ing bod­ies. I won­der how much of a fi­nan­cial con­tri­bu­tion they are mak­ing to these pro­grams?

They could be proac­tive and em­ploy drones to spot the car­casses and call the au­thor­i­ties for a tow out to sea be­fore they get beached.

Buy a boat and tow the car­casses out to sea them­selves. Can the surf­ing com­pe­ti­tion or­gan­is­ers con­trib­ute to the shark buoy costs, per­haps buy their own and move them from comp to comp?

Next, the shore fish­er­men will want life­savers and safety har­nesses, or bik­ers will de­mand Miche­lin suits for their safety. Gra­ham Smith, Mar­garet River
