Bring­ing your to the beach is the best way to stay safe.

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Sport -

While the risk of a shark en­counter in WA is very low, there are some sim­ple things ev­ery­one can do to help keep safe at the beach.

• Stay up to date with shark sight­ings by mon­i­tor­ing the SharkS­mart web­site and vis­it­ing Surf Life­sav­ing WA’s Twit­ter feed.

• Swim at a pa­trolled beach, or one with a des­ig­nated beach en­clo­sure.

• Take ad­van­tage of the State Gov­ern­ment’s $200 re­bate of­fer and pur­chase an ap­proved per­sonal shark de­ter­rent de­vice for surfers and divers.

• Lis­ten to au­thor­i­ties. If the beach is closed, don’t go in the wa­ter.
