Answers to the questions we are most often asked about white sharks, such as where they are, how many there are, how we tag and track them, and why they need protecting.
The white shark is listed as vulnerable and migratory under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.
Seal colonies regularly visited by white sharks can be ideal for shark viewing tourism. In Australia, white shark cage diving occurs only at the Neptune Islands Group Marine Park.
An understanding of shark movements and behaviour, however, is important to better understand the risk of encounters with sharks. Our research does not relate directly to shark attacks.
