Whale sharks need our help

This huge fish has big problems. Help us bring whale sharks back from the brink.

THE WHALE SHARK is the world’s largest fish species, reaching up to 20m in length and an average weight of more than 20 tonnes. Sadly, the global population of whale sharks has been falling and last year the species’ conservation status was upgraded from Vulnerable to Endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

The AG Society is supporting efforts to rescue the species by raising funds for ECOCEAN, Australia’s only not-for-profit research organisation dedicated to conserving the whale shark.
