Listen to the entire show
Welcome to the Radio Workshop podcast! On today’s show we head down to the beach to find out more about sharks – and we receive a letter from a 14-year old girl who survived the earthquake in Haiti.
A recent fatal shark attack at one of Cape Town’s most popular beaches has left many people scared. But as we discover in today’s programme, if you obey a few basic rules and keep to the shallow waters, you should still be able to enjoy the sea and stay safe. Today we’ll meet some of the Shark Spotters at Muizenberg beach.
