"Every summer, many Australians head to the ocean to swim, surf, sail, kayak,
and walk along the beach.

But humans are not alone when we use the ocean. Fish, seals, dolphins, sharks,
jellyfish, turtles, stingrays, cuttlefish, and birds often swim alongside us.
When we enter the ocean we become part of an entangled web of animal

Encountering animals when we swim and surf in the ocean is fun and exciting.
But sharing the water with animals also comes with the risk of stings, bites,
frights, and injury to us. It can also bring harm to ocean wildlife.

By educating ourselves about marine life, humans can minimise risks to
ourselves and the animals who call the ocean home."
