Their findings were published in the Aug. 16 edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The Tunku Abdul Rahman Park is a government gazetted and protected marine park a mere 10 minutes by boat from the shores of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah in the northern part of Borneo.

Blue Guru will be running its Whale Shark Program for the 3rd season in 2012.

In 2010, participants spotted a Whale Shark never before recorded in either Project Aware's Whale Shark Program database (run by Shark Trust) or Ecocean's photo library. By submitting data & photos, we can now track where this whale shark is seen as it migrates through the Andaman Sea and potentially around the world. Will it return to Richelieu Rock again?
