It might be that there is a simple solution to all of this. Perhaps the protesters could consider using their skills and time more effectively. My suggestion is that they could organise themselves to patrol our beaches 24/7 and shoo away any sharks that get too close for comfort. There seems to be no shortage of potential volunteers (ie pro-shark activists) and they seem to have some very good organisers, who have excellent media skills, and a strong ability to communicate widely and rally the troops. So it would seem that it should not be too hard for them to get together and do something that might actually be useful. The State Government could step back completely and leave it to the protesters to deal with the problem. There would be no need to spend public money, the sharks would be protected and so would the public. The protesters would be contributing to society by providing a useful community service, and they would get the satisfaction of really doing some good. Seems like a win, win situation to me.
