Crab Island and St John islands are among the world’s most dangerous places for sharks.
Both are off the beaten path in South Africa and have an extremely high mortality rate.
So what makes them so dangerous?
It’s not just the high numbers of sharks, they also suffer from high levels of environmental pollution and are threatened by a lack of water, food and habitat.
In an effort to improve the health of these sharks, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is working with local authorities in South African to install some of the best shark habitat on the island.
“They have to live in a certain area,” said Dr. Jurgen van den Berghe, WWF’s chief shark biologist.
“They have got to have a certain type of water quality.
It’s not a perfect system, but it’s working very well.”
He added that the plan is to install a series of nets around the island to help control the sharks.
Dr. van den Boghe said there are many other ways to help the sharks, including education, awareness, and research.
The WWF has also partnered with local councils and government to establish a shark conservation plan.
This is part of a larger effort to reduce shark deaths and promote conservation.
Dr. van der Brug said the goal is to reduce the number of sharks on the islands from 20,000 to 15,000 by 2030.
