Surrounded: In January, West Australia’s controversial catch-and-kill order saw the first shark shot to death after being found on a drum line off Meelup Beach, near Dunsborough. Above, Ms Rochat swims with sharks

Dressed in only a bikini, she is captured coming within touching distance of the creatures, which are considered one of the most deadly species in the world.
She can also be seen swimming alongside Lemon sharks, known for their powerful bite, and Caribbean reef sharks, which can grow up to 10ft long, in other locations.

The photos were taken as part of the campaign ‘Get Hooked on Conservation, Ban Drumlines’, which aims to stop the culling of sharks using drum lines in Western Australia and South Africa.
A drum line consists of a floating drum with two lines attached to it. One line is joined to an anchor on the sea bed, while the other attached to a large baited shark hook dangling underneath the surface of the water.
