In a performance protest against the Australian shark cull and the global slaughter of sharks, celebrated mermaid and dedicated conservationist Hannah Fraser puts her life on the line while dancing on the sea floor with swarms of tiger sharks up to 17 feet long, without any dive or protective gear!

The high-risk PR stunt comes off the back Australia's government appearing committed to reinstating their shark cull, wanting to extend the new policy to three years despite the ineffective results (this year no Great White sharks were caught by the drumlines).

It's worth noting the dance was carried out in the presence of Jim Abernethy, the world's leading authority on interactions with large "predatory" sharks, so we advise you not to try this at home.

Should you wish, you can sign their anti-shark cull petition to stop the Australia shark culling programme.
