Boaters “Surf” Whale Shark – Cause Outrage

By on June 19, 2015 in Surfing with 0 Comments

These guys certainly know how to throw a party. It’s hard to tell from this video why the whale shark was following them so closely but they took advantage of it by getting some incredible footage, however unscrupulous. Here’s the reaction from the web. For our part, the animal seemed to be having a good time.

Unbelievable footage of individuals ‘surfing’ a whale shark. What a sad reflection on their attitude to wildlife when, instead of considering themselves fortunate to see this majestic creature in the wild, they choose to participate in a stupid stunt like this (wonder if they would have done this with a great white shark?).

As whale sharks are protected – the IUCN (World Conservation Union) Red List of Threatened Species lists the Whale Shark as vulnerable – these guys should be charged – come on FB community, please help bring these people to justice for their stupidity and arrogance treating a protected species in this way. Please share widely.
