After a recent series of shark sightings, Sea Rescue South Africa has issued a warning for swimmers and surface to be very cautious one of these close encounters with sketchers in this drone video where you can see a great white shark swimming very close to a group of servers

The Sea Rescue South Africa organization tweeted the following warning:

Due to a high number of reported White Shark sightings and close encounters, NSRI are appealing to the public exercise caution along the Southern Cape coastline, in particular around the coastline of Plettenberg Bay and between Mossel Bay and Jeffreys Bay.

The rescue organization said according to CNN, that recently they have seen a large number of shark sightings and some of them very close to swimmers and surfers. The drone video shown below shows a group of surfers in Plettenberg Bay being checked out by a Great White shark.

“The behaviour seen in this drone footage shows that the shark is aware of the surfers and is investigating the surfers,” Sarah Waries, of the City of Cape Town (CoCT) Shark Spotters program, said in the statement.
“It is important for people to remember that White sharks are naturally inquisitive Apex predators and that although shark bites are rare, water users must understand the inherent risk associated with sharing the ocean with these animals and change their behaviour accordingly to avoid encountering sharks.”
