SYDNEY, Australia - "This year may be remembered as the 'summer of the shark hunt'," stated Christopher Neff, University of Sydney doctoral research student studying the politics of shark attacks.

Neff added, "Shark bites are terrible events and for a third time this year Western Australia has endured another tragedy. But there is no evidence that shark hunts reduce the risk to swimmers," stated Neff.

The Western Australian Government's authorized shark hunt this past weekend represents the fifth reported shark hunt in 2011.

Please follow the link to help me raise funds for such a great cause. As divers we know how bad it can be when you come across broken bottles, entangled aquatic life, plastic bags etc. There are millions of divers around the world who know what I'm saying. All I'm asking for is $1AUS from each person and I would have smashed my part of the fundraising.
