The Full Story

With over 200 shark and ray species, the South African coastline represents one of the most unique and biodiverse regions in the world. In 2003, Gainsbaai alone brought in over 4.4 million USD for Great White Shark diving tourism. However, on the eastern coast of South Africa, since 1952 the "shark nets" on the tourist beaches of KwaZulu Natal have resulted in the culling of sea life and a profound decline in the number of Great White Sharks remaining in the wild. Find out how it all started, where things are now and how we can move forward responsibly. We need to act before we are in fact looking at our last shark.



"The Last Shark" documentary film is about bringing our relationship with The Great White Sharks of South Africa into balance. 


Our vision is to highlight the ecological importance of this coastline and the biodiversity that inhabits it and how removing the shark nets can help endangered shark populations and increase ecotourism and research across South Africa.
