Shark ADVICE for Three Bears, near YallingupCurrent Alerts and Warnings
Update 10am, 21 June 2018
The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions has extended the Regulation 44 beach closure related to a decomposing whale carcass south of Three Bears surfing spot, near Yallingup.
The closure will remain in force until 6pm on Thursday 28 June 2018.
The closure extends from 600 metres north of the Three Bears Carpark to 300 metres north of Shivery Rock surf break.
This means beaches and waters up to two kilometres out to sea cannot be used by divers, surfers and swimmers. This closure does not apply to vessels.
The slowly decomposing whale carcass remains in this area and may continue to act as an attractant to sharks.
A further assessment will be carried out by DBCA, before the closure is due to end next Thursday.
Shark sightings should be reported to Water Police on 9442 8600.
