ECOCEAN Road Trip will stop off in Geraldton on 2nd April with giant blow up Whale Shark 'Gulliver'.
Whale sharks are known from Ningaloo, but reports show they are also found all along the WA coast, fromAlbany to Broome - and maybe beyond!
From March until May 2013, not-for-profit whale shark conservation group, ECOCEAN, is travelling along the WA coast in the hope to find other whale shark hot spots.
ECOCEAN will be holding a free community information evening in every town we visit to record previous whale shark sightings people may have seen and to introduce the photo-identification program we use to monitor whale sharks at Ningaloo and around the world.
Come along and learn how you can become a ‘citizen scientist’ and help ECOCEAN solve the mystery surrounding the world’s biggest fish!
Please see www.whaleshark.org.au/education/ecocean-roadtrip- 2013/ for more details on when the team at ECOCEAN will be in your town or contact Road Trip coordinator Kim Hands on 0400130397.
We look forward to sharing our love for the whale shark and the marine environment with you!
