International Whale Shark Day being celebrated to spread awareness about importance of whale sharks

New Delhi, Aug 30:-- Today is International Whale Shark Day. It is celebrated to spread awareness about the importance of whale sharks and their conservation. Started in 2008, at the International Whale Shark Conference in Isla Holbox, International Whale Shark Day has grown popular over the years. On the International Whale Shark Day, Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) is launching 'save the whale shark campaign' in Karnataka, Kerala, and Lakshadweep.


The campaign aims to bring together marine fisher folks, village communities and students for conservation awareness on the whale shark. Additionally, a mobile app has also been developed to further the conservation efforts. Whale sharks are the largest shark species of fish on the planet. They usually prefer to swim in shallow depths and are known for their slow and gentle behavior. This makes them an easy prey to humans.

The whale shark market has led to an approximate 50% decline in the fish’s population, leading them to be placed in the endangered species list. 'Save the whale shark' campaign aims to reinstate the beautiful creature to its former glory.
