Taking precautions can help prevent shark attacks

There seem to be many more shark attacks on Maui, with little being done to prevent them. Many locals, who are used to going to the beach on a daily basis, take little caution before entering the ocean or passing the threshold into the deep.

I propose that the people of Maui should be more aware about shark safety and guidelines. Be cautious when entering murky water and be aware of the signage at the beach.

There could also be a system, similar to surf reports, where people will be able to monitor shark sightings around the island and avoid such places.

People need to exercise caution when entering the water to avoid being a victim.
