Great White Sharks and Respecting Nature

30 September 2011

The recent shark attack in False Bay has again sparked a controversial debate about whether Great White Sharks are creatures to be be feared or respected.

The fact that there are no shark nets in False Bay does imply an element of risk every time we enter the water- something that unfortunately was not taken into full consideration on Wednesday according to a recent News24 article.

It is inevitable that this kind of incident could make us fearful of these majestic mammals, but the response of Michael Cohen, who sadly lost his leg, reminds us that when it comes to nature we are just part of a greater system that we will not always understand.
