The White Shark Conservation Trust has been established to promote awareness of the need to conserve and protect the white shark, Carcharodon carcharias and to educate the public about the animal. This action was triggered by a personal desire of one of the Trustees who decided he could no longer remain an armchair environmentalist. The realisation of the absolute fragility of these creatures was brought home to Bruce Goorney on a life changing expedition to see the sharks first hand at the Neptune Islands in the Spencer Gulf, South Australia in January 2008.

As we say all the time, education is key to making safe well informed decisions.

We don’t know the full details of the incident and what exactly the diver was doing. We would ask readers to keep in mind the limited information before launching into discussion on whether or not the diver was acting responsibly. Please bare in mind he will no doubt be suffering shock and PTSD. Negative comments will not help his recovery. We are extremely pleased the incident was no worse.

Bare in mind too, the shark’s behaviour illustrates perfectly that we, as a species, are not part of the white shark’s diet.
