Push for WA ocean pools to keep swimmers safe from sharks

This after three fatal shark attacks in WA in seven weeks, prompting a proposal of “practical engineering solutions” to safeguard swimmers. Read thewest.com.au. Former world champion open water swimmer Shelley Taylor-Smith says after moving back to Perth three years ago after 17 years in Sydney:
