The great white shark abandoned at a wildlife park in Victoria Australia. This is the story of Rosie. Transcript:
About a month ago I ventured here with with Rob, an amazing Melbourne based urban explorer. Instagram link below.
We weren’t sure what we would find and little did we know that the shark in this barn house has captured the hearts and minds of plenty.

A lot of you had questions on how this shark came to be left, forgotten, in the dark for years and years. It’s time you found out what happened here. The truth. The truth about a shark called Rosie.
Rosie is a 5m long shark who died in a tuna fishing net and is apparantly one the the biggest shark caught in Australia. This happens all too often with sharks in Australia and around the world and are mostly discarded without a thought. An Australian artist saw Rosie in the net, have her a name and due to her size and unscathed body preserved her in chemicals and gave her to Wildlife Wonderland as an exhibition here in Bass Victoria Australia. She still sits here silent, in the dark with her fin above the chemical line slowly deteriorating like everything else around her.
Wildlife wonderland closed abruptly because it’s owner didn’t have the licenses or permissions for the animals. They were moved to better places however the shark remains. Apparently 3 years ago Rosie was up for sale however when they tried to love her, the tank buckled and became an environmental and safety risk. It also would have jeapardized Rosie so this is why she remains here to this day.
The smell is powerful and strong. It hurts your eyes, ears and lungs to a point you can only stay near for no more than 10 seconds.
Vandals and disrespectful explorers have tried to smash their way into the tank, as well as throw old tvs, ironing boards and anything they could find. It’s horrible to see and terrible what happens here.
For a lot of kids and keen wildlife enthusiasts Rosie did show the power and size of sharks to many who came here in the past. Her death provided education to many however she should have been moved away from this place years back.
I am very grateful I have been able to see her one last time. Thank you for sharing this video and let’s make sure Rosie has a bright future somewhere nicer than this.
To anyone thinking of coming here for a look, don’t. The owners are doing what they can do keep this place safe. Respect Rosie and let’s hope the owners handle Rosie respectfully. Get her out of this tin shed and on display somewhere more peaceful.
Special thanks to Steak & Titties for the amazing tank shots (he was not the one who breached the tank FYI):

Another reason I'm so glad you didn't cut the neighbors interruption from the final video, and also not publicly address her or anything. And I know videos like these will knock down a lot of people already planning to go, so I wanted to add as well that as interesting and cool as that is because it is ridiculously awesome, and a VERY, VERY unique of a find for sure no matter if your an explorer or just came up on it. I want people to also understand and take into account that because as cool as something is to people, there is still neighbors who have to pay for the newfound publicity, and that's terrifying to me to think of someone coming by where I live at all hours because of my neighbor, we forget they didn't ask for that, and definitely look up videos like these like I'm doing cause it is super cool! It's crazy, but they're entitled to privacy just like everyone of us who feels the same with things we own and our properties.
Why is everyone freaking out over a DEAD shark, it’s already dead, it’s not abandoned and it can’t feel itself rotting. Do you know how many sharks die every day. The shark doesn’t having feelings, it doesn’t care what you throw at it, and it doesn’t have a name, it’s an animal. Calm down.
Oh please. Anyone wanting info could have got this info elsewhere (ie where you got your (basic) info from). You give the location yet tell people to stay away and give info easily found online like you’re doing the right thing. If you want to do the right thing you wouldn’t even post about this place. Using the pretence of trying to help while clearly trying to get views /content to only better yourself and your “brand”. Another superficial YouTuber. You don’t give a rats ass if people go there, if you did you wouldn’t post about it, you’d do something about it to help-not on camera.
Anyone else just catching up on the 'Save Rosie the Shark' event here's his update on Rosie in her new home!
Here's the gofundme to help refill her tank!
I would like to understand why the owners of the property didn’t just go through the proper channels to do exactly what the artist did and preserve dear Rosie or at least find a way to have her remains donated to like a museum or something
This is not so bad.I was thinking that the shark was a living exhibit,that for whatever the reason,was just left to die in it’s tank area during the park abandonment process.So congratulations on deceiving me jerko.
When I first heard about Rosie I thought it was some guy that found a LIVING shark chilling in a tank in an abandoned zoo, kinda sad that isn’t the story tho because that would’ve been a lot more interesting
some of this information is actually wrong. the “artist” they don’t even credit is Damien Hirst, and the piece they show was done in 1991- and was not ever given to a wildlife park. I don’t know why they would include this- his work is actually of a much smaller tiger shark.
The problem is not that Facebook and Google are the only advertising platforms. The problem is that they are considered mainstream media and without these two, the trend of cryptocurrencies gaining legitimacy is delayed. That is right, I said delayed not blocked or prevented.
The World Has Changed.
Five years ago, when bitcoin was unknown to most people, this might have been a fatal move. Today is a different story. I recently traveled to a remote mountain town in the interior of Mexico. Everyone I met had heard about Bitcoin and eyes lit up with excitement when I ask if I could pay for lunch with bitcoin.
Today are dozens of websites dedicated to cryptocurrencies, either holding them, exchanging them or just writing about them. Probably the most effective advertising remains on Google, it is called Google Search and it is free.
If someone wants to learn about owning bitcoin or any other currency, there is a ton of educational information.

Not All Regulation Is Inherently Bad.
If we examine the full spectrum of regulation to this point on a global scale there is one common target most everywhere. That is the practice of exchanges. So far there has been little or not regulation, threatened or enacted, to protect investors from loss of funds due to security breaches.
Capitulation Is A Good Sign.
