Why are research and conservation for this species important?
"It is amazing to me to be able to swim with a creature whose species has been around for 60 million years and who is so many times our size. By researching whale shark behavior, we unlock clues to the mysteries of the ocean. By trying to protect whale sharks, we protect the history of the world. "
