Statement: shark incident at Gladstone

Published: 07/04/2020

Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service ranger who lost his life in the shark incident that occurred off Gladstone yesterday.

The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service are valued partners in Marine Park management, and we’ve worked closely with them for more than 40 years. Our thoughts are with the team at this time.

As this is a matter for the coroner, and to respect the privacy of those involved, we’re not in a position to provide further information at this time.
