Watch researchers tag whale sharks, the biggest fish in the ocean. Whale sharks grow to over 40 feet long and weigh as much as 20 tons.
Conservation International has partnered with the Indonesian Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries, the State University of Papua and the Cenderawasih National Park Authority to tag whale sharks with fin-mounted satellite tags in Indonesia’s Birds Head Peninsula.
Tracking and monitoring whale sharks helps scientists better understand the movements, patterns and behaviors of these gentle giants. People need sharks. And sharks need people.
