Breaking news: our new study has revealed #Madagascar is a feeding hotspot for juvenile #whalesharks with 85 sharks identified in a single season. . For more info: link in bio. . . #research #marineconservation #endangeredspecies #whaleshark
Our volunteer openings are now open 🙌 Fancy swimming with whale sharks everyday while helping us to collect data? We will also collect data on humpback whale but from the boat only to not bother them. Good swimmers and French speakers, come join us! Email us for more info 🦈🐋 #The costs cover your stay as well as all the boat trips with our partner @baleinesrandeau * #volunteer #whaleshark #humpbackwhale #madagascar #nosybe

Whale sharks are just one of the things we see when out at sea ☺️ here swimming with mobula rays 📷 @arnaultdeperetti #mobula #mantaray #madagascar #freediving
Single use plastic ends up in whale sharks too 😢great work by our colleagues at @marinemegafauna. Another reason to stop using them! #stopsingleuseplastic #plastickills #Repost @natgeo with @get_repost ・・・ Photograph by @thomaspeschak A recent scientific study revealed that filter feeding marine animals like whale sharks accidentally ingest considerable amounts of micro-plastics. At less than five mm in size, micro plastics are similar in dimension to a whale shark’s regular plankton meals. Unlike the plastic bag in this picture which was easy to spot, grab and stuff into my wetsuit, removing micro plastics from our oceans is much more difficult. At present the only real solution is preventing plastics from getting into ocean in the first place. I would love to hear from all of YOU about what you are currently doing to help decrease plastic pollution in our oceans. Thoughts, ideas and tips in the comments please. That way we can all learn from each other. Please follow @thomaspeschak for more photographs that aim to inspire people to safeguard the health of our oceans.
