Sharks that tweet in Australia: Questions
1.) Sharks tweet in Australia. But not by holding phones in their flippers using them to write! They get tagged with electronic trackers that remotely send out tweets via twitter to Surf Life Saving WA.
2.) It was necessary to create this way so fisherman don’t have to kill sharks, reducing their amounts.
1) Sharks can tweet because people put electronic trackers in sharks so that when a shark comes one mile off the coast it sends an alert so that people can get out of the water.
2) It was important to create this warning mechanism because they think that if they get everybody out of the water before the sharks get there they will be able to prevent shark attacks from happening because nobody is in the water there is nobody for them to attack.
3) The new law allows professional fishermen to kill sharks that get too close.
