Beachgoers heading for a surf or a swim will soon be able to check conditions and the most recent shark sightings before the time, using a mobile app.
The Shark Spotters team is using crowdfund platform Backabuddy to try to raise R60 000 to create the app, which will be a one-stop shop for beachgoers, with real-time information from all the beaches where we operate.
It will have safety alerts, spotting conditions, whale activity, surf reports and environmental conditions.
Developers have already started working on the app, which is expected to be launched at the beginning of October, in time for the school holidays.
