Not far from where I live, Grey Nurse Sharks (Carcharias taurus) are in residence at Magic Point in the Sydney suburb of Maroubra, New South Wales, Australia – this is one of the 16 known sites where these sharks aggregate in New South Wales. There are less than 500 individuals of this species left on the east coast of Australia. Although protected by law, they are still regularly killed by human activities, primarily commercial and recreational fishing.
IUCN Red List Status: Critically Endangered.
