In a world first, the West Australian government have today implemented their election policy promise of a Shark Deterrent Rebate. The first 1000 West Australian residents to purchase the Shark Shield FREEDOM7 the worlds only scientifically proven and independently tested electrical shark deterrent device, will receive a $200 rebate.
Lindsay Lyon, Shark Shield CEO says, “From today, all West Australian residents will have the opportunity to receive the $200 rebate on purchases of our Shark Shield FREEDOM7.
“This is a significant step forward for governments in recognizing that those most at risk, surfers and divers, need individual deterrent protection and I commend Premier Mark McGowan for delivering on his policy promise. Ensuring proven electrical deterrent devices such as Shark Shield are more readily available to those most at risk will greatly improve ocean sport safety and save lifes,” said Lindsay.
In order for customers to receive the $200 rebate, the rebate needs to be applied at the point of sale at a registered Shark Shield retailer. The retailer will then be reimbursed by the Western Australian Department of Fisheries. Rebates are also limited to WA residence and one per person.
