Topic: Shark Proof Wet Suit
Finding: Developed in Australia, new wet suit makes surfers and swimmers invisible (or repellent) to sharks.
Implications: Will this technology create a new tourist industry for those of us who would like to see these animals in the wild? Will other technologies follow that will help humans become invisible or undesirable to other predators in the wild? How about, for example, a suit that makes us invisible to bears? How will this combine with something like the Costa Rican initiative to close down their Zoos and return their animals to the wild? Will we enter a new era in which the whole of the natural world is a relatively safer nature park for humans?
