NSRI and Bitou Municipality are appealing to the public to exercise caution along the Plettenberg Bay and Southern Cape coastline following increased shark activity feeding on a whale carcass washing ashore.

The carcass of a Humpback whale has been spotted in the vicinity between Natures Valley and Keurbooms Beach with a visible shark presence feeding on the carcass.

We are appealing to the public, bathers, paddlers and boaters to be cautious due to the increased shark presence.

The whale carcass is gradually drifting closer to shore and is expected to beach and this is being monitored.

Considerations to remove the carcass are being investigated.
