Scientists in Western Australia (WA) have equipped at least 320 sharks with transmitters that update a Twitter feed when the collared shark swims nears shore, meaning that technology is one step closer to finally defeating sharks.
This makes me wonder if Montana’s collared animals could eventually reach the same fate? Imagine all the grizzly bears in Glacier park all microchipped and Tweeting their location to hikers.
Sky News reports that when a shark comes roughly within one kilometer (.6 mile) to shore, the transmitter triggers an alert picked up by a computer which transforms the message into a tweet including the size, breed and approximate location of the shark. The tweets are sent out bySurf Life Saving WA’s feed, and look something like this:
Six people have been killed by sharks in Western Australia in the past two years, making it the deadliest region for shark attacks. The spike in fatalities has prompted the Australian government to test out new ways to protect surfers.
