I hate posting anything that isn’t happy, but something needs to change at Reunion Island.
Yesterday, 13 year old Elio Canestri was killed during an official coaching session.
Elio is the 7th person killed by sharks at Reunion Island since 2011!
Just a couple months ago it was announced that Reunion Island would be trying out all kinds of shark-prevention devices. 10,000,000 Euro has been put aside, but apparently they didn’t get started soon enough.
Now I’m not going to say that we should kill all of the sharks, but we definitely need to find a way to prevent attacks and keep surfers safe.
