Update on 14 July at 1:30pm
Rangers from the Shire of Gingin have inspected the beaches adjacent to the Seabird townsite and the remains of the whale carcass are no longer present in the area.
Additional caution is recommended by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, as residue from the whale carcass may still attract sharks.
Switch on your Sea Sense and stay informed of shark activity information by checking the SharkSmart website, download the SharkSmart WA app or follow Surf Life Saving WA Twitter.
If you see a shark, report it to Water Police on 9442 8600.
