With the extensive media coverage of the shark attack on Mike Cohen on the 28 September, an incident which has resulted in the closure of many of the False Bay beaches for extended periods of time, passions have been re-ignited on both sides of the Great Shark Divide. We feel that it is essential to get a balanced and broad view of the current situation with the aim of finding a win-win situation for both human beings and sharks.
