Whale Shark Pup Rescue

Recommended Posts

A neonatal whale shark was rescued by a local fisherman in the coastal waters off the fishing village of Sutrapada on the morning of February 18. This self-documented rescue was the fifth encounter with whale shark pups recorded under the Whale Shark Conservation Project, run by Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) and the Gujarat Forest Department with support from Tata Chemicals Ltd. The recorded presence of neonatal whale sharks in the Gujarat coastal waters is significant, in that it supports the proposition that the Arabian Sea may be a breeding territory for whale sharks.
