WA government to track white pointers in ‘real time’

The WA government is using satellite receivers along the WA coast to track white pointers in ‘real time’. About 100 sharks will be tagged in a 2-year study to measure the movements & migration patterns of the sharks along the metropolitan coast. More than 70 sharks have already been tagged, most of them from SA. If one of the tagged sharks swims off of Perth’s beaches, authorities will be alerted either by email or SMS to their mobiles.
