Ben Cropps Wild Australia – Vanishing Grey Nurse Sharks. Without a doubt Australia’s grey nurse shark population is declining and is on the brink of extinction. It began during the 1960’s when shark netting programmes began catching hundreds of local grey nurse sharks. At the same time a new *sport* was born – shark hunting which targeted the slow moving grey nurse sharks that hunted off the NSW coast.

Ben Cropp is your host for this thrilling documentary which is brilliant as Ben was once a shark hunter who swapped his spears for a camera and began capturing the majestic grey nurse shark on camera rather than killing them.

There are 57 known *shark gutters* along the NSW coast where thousands of grey nurse sharks are schooled, the once thriving population is now falling. Not helping is the very strange natural reproduction system of the shark. The most advanced embryo in each of the shark’s two uteri will actually eat all the remaining embryos – this process is called intrauterine cannibalism.

Ben Cropp knows these sharks well and he knows where they live from his shark hunting days, these days he returns to the areas to study and film their behaviour. Within just a few kilometres of the Sydney Harbour Bridge Ben finds a family of grey nurse sharks living in a cave just meters from shore.
