Whale sharks are the largest non-whale vertebrate on the planet and the largest fish that has ever lived, but they’re globally endangered by human activities. What secrets does the life of such an animal hold, what can we learn from them about their vast open ocean habitat, and how can we restore their populations and ensure their perpetual presence in the tropical oceans?
From Madagascar to Mexico and St. Helena to Seychelles, join marine biologist and author Dr. Alistair Dove from the Georgia Aquarium on World Oceans Day as we explore the extraordinary life and adaptations of whale sharks in a search for insight into the life of the world’s biggest fish.
Our think + drink / science program on June 8 is an opportunity for you to grab an adult beverage and learn about science and nature in a relaxed and informal setting. The day’s expert gives a short presentation, then opens the floor for questions and discussion!
