The Beeld Holiday Show provided a platform for KZNSB to raise awareness on shark education, lure the holiday makers to visit and experience its offerings which include but are not limited to, Audio Visual & Shark Dissection Presentations, Shark Museum with informative displays, 'Fathoms’ Curio Shop with KZNSB’s personalised memorabilia and to book a trip on the Boards ‘educational’ early morning Boat tours on their next visit to the Province of KwaZulu-Natal.
This opportunity, also allowed the Board to disseminate relevant information to the local visitors and share beach safety tips/precautions to be respected at all the protected beaches along KZN coastline for which the Board has been mandated to protect bathers against sharks attacks. This is yet another contribution from the Board towards promoting the domestic beach tourism rendered in KZN Province.
