Electrical Shark Repellent
For over a decade the KZN Sharks Board experimented in the use of electrical fields to repel sharks. In 1996 this culminated in the development and sale of a successful electrical shark repellent, the SharkPOD (Protective Oceanic Device). Distribution of the SharkPOD ended in 2001.
The SharkPOD Diver Unit was specifically designed for use by SCUBA divers. Most of the sales were to commercial divers, as recreational divers want to see sharks rather than repel them. The concept was later modified for use by commercial, surface-supply divers, who obtain their air from the surface via an airline.

So, we came to see the birds. Think Eden Project. This is a huge 'free flight bird sanctuary'. Enclosing a valley with tall forest trees. Not a new planting that has to grow, but an existing habitat. Birds and animals are kept securely in, or out, but the insects would move freely. There is a stream, with a high up shallow pond for te flamingos and a larger deeper pond with a waterfall where we lunched. They have a closed system for the water. Protecting them from unexpected contamination by runoff from informal housing or agriculture. The source is this attractive fake stone ruin.
