Latest MISSION from our Large Marine Vertebrate Project, Philippines (LAMAVE) team - Above Giants Expedition - #whaleshark conservation from the sky! We’ve got the tags, we now need a boat….A FLYING BOAT!!
Watch Marissa Fox’s video for LAMAVE’s entry to National Geographic Expedition Granted+ - if we win they’ll give us $50,000 for whale shark research.
What will the boat will allow us to do?
To further explore the waters of the Philippines and South East Asia, searching for new aggregations of whale sharks from the sky (much faster and more efficient than by sea). Mapping aggregations will help us determine key areas for whale sharks in South East Asia which will enable us to create better protection for these amazing animals. Uncovering aggregations of adult sharks would be a massive step in helping solve the mystery of where whale sharks may be reproducing.
