Shark Safety Tips

Shark attacks can happen in any coastal area. To avoid such incidents, follow these tips by Taylor Cunningham, a marine biologist, and shark conservationist:

  • Swim in groups, as sharks are more likely to attack individuals.
  • Avoid splashing and making sudden moves, as they attract sharks.
  • Do not wear shiny jewelry or brightly colored swimsuits as they can attract sharks.
  • Do not swim near schools of fish or seals, as they are the prey of sharks.
  • Do not enter the water if you have an open wound or are bleeding.
  • Avoid swimming during twilight hours, as sharks are more active during that time.
  • Do not swim in areas where sharks are known to have been spotted.
  • Leave the water if there are any signs of sharks in the area, such as fins or strange behavior of marine animals.
  • If you are attacked by a shark, do not play dead. Fight for your life, punch its nose, and try to escape.

Shark attacks can be avoided by following these tips. Be aware of your surroundings and take necessary precautions before entering the water.
