Australia using shark-scanning drones to protect beaches

The Australian state of New South Wales will deploy drones on its beaches to help prevent shark attacks in the world’s largest surveillance program of its kind.

Funding for the state’s shark management initiative was almost tripled to A$21.4 million (R229.7 million), allowing authorities to boost measures to limit attacks, according to a statement on Sunday.
