Drone spots multiple bronze whaler sharks near swimmers, speaker system alerts them

0

At a Sydney beach our Mavic 2 Enterprise Dual search and rescue drone identified 5-10 bronze whaler sharks cruising along the beach at various points in time. We alerted the public using the emergency speaker system (recording a message live, transmitting it to the drone, and then playing it to the public), and nobody ever appeared at risk. While record-keeping is very poor, outright fatalities from bronze whalers are rare compared to Great White Sharks with only two recent deaths in Australia. One was at Tathra Beach in NSW in 2014 while another was at Bunker Bay in Western Australia in 2011. We have provided a few links below on reported Bronze Whaler fatalities:
