Indian Man Fights to Save Whale Sharks


Whale Sharks are by far my most favourite creature under the sea.  They are not a shark, in fact, they are plankton eaters and are very gentle giants.  Unfortunately, they get caught in fish nets and they are rapidly moving towards the endangered species list.  This heartwarming video is about one man's efforts to help save this amazing creature.



Whale sharks are the world's largest fish and are classified as endangered. In India, their survival has been put at risk by hunting or being caught in fishing nets.
