Posted this on another site but felt it worthy of sharing here.

Sad but true. Great White Sharks vanish from Cape Town and no one knows why.

These magnificent animals, which have been responsible for a number of fatal attacks off Cape Town and which support South Africa's shark-diving industry, haven't been seen in the region for 18 months!

Between 2010 and 2016 staff at the Shark Spotting Programme, established to warn swimmers when the three ton predators approached beaches, reported an average of 205 sightings of the fish off the beaches of False Bay. In 2018 that fell to 50 and this year not one has been seen. None have been seen at Seal Island, a one-time feeding ground off the coast.

Really is something Steve, and am hoping that they have just moved out
of the area. Rather than disappearing, or going down in numbers.

Will really be something to keep on eye on, and see if things change one
way, or the other. Or if they can get to the bottom of it, and get some
answers. ..Thanks very much.
