About this website

We’re helping WA get SHARK SMART. We have always enjoyed a beach going lifestyle here in Western Australia, so it’s important to understand the facts about sharks and the hazards they present. This website is put together so West Australians who love to use our amazing coastline – the surfers, swimmers and divers – can continue to do so.
