Save Whale Sharks

Date: 1/8/2000

Continual illegal hunting of whale sharks for fins and meat is being reported in the waters of the Philippines, Indonesia and Bangladesh. In 1998 there were reports of more than 1,000 whale sharks killed in offshore India. This crisis shows signs of moving towards Thai teritorial waters. ‘Save Whale Sharks’ is a Thai conservation group dedicated to the study and protection of whale sharks. They are currently seeking donations to assist with getting whale sharks listed as the sixteenth protected animal in Thailand enabling them to peacefully inhabit Thai territorial waters.
