Blog comments Your Say

  • My fingers are crossed that the Australian Government takes this opportunity to bring Chris Fischer and his crew to our Waters. It is a costly prject but it is totally worth while, not only are you gaing invaluable research, your minimising the risk of fatalities AND PROTECTING the White sharks. Clling is certainly NOT the answer! BRING THE CREW IN!!
