Aerial Footage of Great White Sharks in Cape Town

I wasn’t sure about posting this aerial view of Cape Town, shot by Eric Cheng of San Francisco, only because of the shots taken while baiting for Great Whites off Seal Island. My view on the great shark debate of Cape Town is that if sharks wanted to feed on humans, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the sea like we do. Daily our False Bay beaches see hundreds of swimmers and surfers, thousands over the weekends, and when we’re in the water, we’re the most immobile of all the creatures. A floating buffet for any would-be apex predator. That said, I am vehemently against the commercial chumming and baiting for sharks, especially the Great Whites in False Bay. What this edit does though (and as far as Google can tell me this was for research), is show once again how incredible these creatures are, and how close we often come to them. We’re very much in their playground when we enter the water. We must either accept the risks, or stay out of the water.
