SHARK ADVICE BETWEEN QUININUP AND WILYABRUP, NORTH OF GRACETOWN
**UPDATED LOCATION AND BEACH CLOSURE**:
A shark ADVICE has been issued for the area between Quininup and Wilyabrup, due to a whale carcass washed ashore at Honeycombs Surfing Spot, north of Gracetown.
At noon today the whale carcass reported as having washed into the surf zone, at Moses Rock Surf Spot. It has since washed further south to Honeycombs. Honeycombs Beach is closed, and will remain closed until at least 7 July.
The whale carcass was reported by a member of the public to the Department of Parks and Wildlife at approximately noon today.
It is reported the carcass is approximately 12m long.
It is possible the decomposing carcass will act as an attractant that could lead to sharks coming close in to shore along this stretch of coast.
While it's not uncommon for sharks to be present off the Western Australian coast throughout the year, people should exercise additional caution while the whale carcass remains close to shore.
