The City plans a shark spotting programme in Kogel Bay
24 April 2012
A meeting was held in Strand last night with the local surfing community and the City of Cape Town.
The City’s Greg Oelofse said the meeting was very positive and everyone agreed that the shark spotting programme needed to be in place full time at the caves at Kogel Bay.
Oelofse said it will take the City four weeks to get the programme up and running.
He added that shark spotters need to be trained in spotting sharks and first aid.
Last week 20-year-old David Lilienfield was killed by a great white shark in Kogel Bay.
