I was watching some drone footage released by Australia's Department of Primary Industries.

The video shows various sea life that can be identified by an airborne drone. ( I specify airborne because there are underwater drones as well )

The video starts by displaying some of the oceans inhabitants that by use of drone, can be identified from the skies.

You got schools of dolphins and rays, turtles...then a great white.

Well, the great white appears to be stalking 2 clueless surfers.

You can see the shark dart towards one of its potential victims, but just as the shark approaches, the surfer catches a wave and wisks away.
Then you can see the shark change its attention towards the other surfer.

Unbeknownst to the lucky guy, the shark has himself a change of heart and takes off in another direction at the last second.

These 2 gents seem to have no idea how close they were to a very serious incident.

Note: for some reason the video isn't linking correctly through YouTube.

You can see the video through this news link:

Drone video link

Perhaps someone can properly link the YouTube video.

Yea that is trippy seeing it from above and I think drone shark watch is a good idea at popular swim/surf areas. Maybe life guards should be required to be drone operators. I think the drone should be able to alert people too when a shark is seen with a horn, flashing lights and/or colored smoke.

Definitely neat stuff.
The applications for these almost seem limitless.

Shark attacks? You do realize there are, on average, only SUPPOSEDLY 70 shark attacks annually across the globe, don't you?

Listen, sharks do not like human flesh because of high ammonia content. Ammonia

Thank you for posting the video for me.
I'm on my iPad.
For some reason the address coming up for the video was enormous, with multiple = signs.
I tried a few times to paste the addy, but it kept coming up wrong.

You may want to google that statement and edit your post.

Shark attacks

Apparently there are over 70 a year reported world wide.

Remember, an attack doesn't necessarily mean a fatality.

Edit: with Australia being second highest on this particular list

No, an attack doesn't necessarily constitute death. However, I remember a few years ago when we had that "rash" of shark attacks, there were like three over the span of a month, the media hyped it up as though it were a common event. I don't know, I just smirk every time someone says "shark attack" as though it happens all of the time.

Lol ya the media tends to make it seem like there's some rouge shark devouring everybody that steps foot in the water when that happens.

although rare, it does happen from time to time.
