DPIRD recommends additional caution from Bunker Bay to Meelup Beach in the Cape Naturaliste area due to increased shark activity.
A tagged white shark has been detected multiple times between the 26th of January and the 28th of January 2021.
There have also been shark sightings from the Surf Life Saving Helicopter in the area recently.
It is possible that the frequency and duration of the recent detections and sightings may increase the likelihood of encountering a shark in the area.
Water users are urged to adhere to local beach closures advised by Local Government Rangers and Surf Life Saving WA.
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.
