SMS being used to track great white sharks prowling beaches
More than 70 sharks have been tagged so far – allowing for message alerts to be sent via SMS or email when one of them moves within 500m of metropolitan beaches. Not only is it a great early warning detection, but the data gathered aims to unlocking the secrets of shark migration patterns. So next time you’re vacationing in Australia, just don’t venture too off from the closest beach lifeguard – you’ll never know when that alert will come in.
