SHARKWATCH ACTIVE OVER EASTER SCHOOL HOLIDAYS

Hello and welcome back...If you live near the coast of NSW, keep an eye out for these guys..

HELICOPTER surveillance will return to Hunter beaches from Saturday to offer an extra layer of vigilance during the Easter school holidays, the NSW government has announced.





There will be helicopter survillance of NSW beaches every day of the school holidays, from 8 April to 25 April.
NSW Minister for Primary Industries Niall Blair said aerial surveillance provides extra reassurance and can help reduce the risk of shark attacks.
“Over the summer our shark spies were very effective at spotting any potential dangers and on 78 occasions, assisted local authorities and NSW Police to evacuate the water," Mr Blair said.
