Shark-free beaches now in Australia

If you are afraid of sharks, Australia is the place to spend your next vacation. That’s because the sharks in Australia will kindly tweet their presence before approaching a beach. So far, 338 sharks have been tagged with devices that automatically tweet:

  • the shark’s size (so you’ll know whether it can eat you whole)
  • location (so you know if it is getting closer)
  • breed (so you’ll know how to describe your brush with death to friends back home)

This means that when is no tweet alert, you can enjoy shark-free beaches in western Australia. According to Industry Tap

The researchers have tagged great whites, whaler sharks and tiger sharks in an effort to reduce the number of shark attacks on beach goers. Since 2011, Australia has more fatal shark attacks than anywhere else in the world.

You will have to bring an Internet enabled device to the beach and make sure to be following @SLSWA on Twitter. Or, as savvy Lifehack readers have probably already figured out, just park yourself beside somebody else who is watching their cell phones for shark tweets.
