Incredible Whale Sharks...
Recently I took a group of friends to snorkel with Whale Sharks off the coast of Mexico.
Here's why they loved it... and here are my tips next time you find yourself in the water with a whale shark!
See you next time on the Shark Task Force, because, why wait a whole year, for just one week on sharks?

This time on the Shark Task Force, a special thought for 2017 from the one and only Dr. Sylvia Earle.
She talks about the special bond between Tiger Shark Expert, Jim Abernethy - and a Tiger Shark he's known for more than a decade - Emma.
We are fortunate to also call this shark friend.
We've spent many days with Emma underwater over the years - and we always come back with a complete since of joy.
Plenty more to come in 2017 as we celebrate ten years of The Shark Task Force.
We also look forward to bringing you news of the premiere of This is Your Ocean: Sharks - Part 2.
Happy New Year - and remember - why wait a whole year, for just one week on sharks?
Special thanks to Jim Abernethy, Guy Harvey and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation.

It's hard to believe we've been at this for more than 10 years.
To celebrate the start of 2017 and a new year for sharks - check out this brand new trailer for This is Your Ocean: Sharks - Part 2.
The film brings back all of your favorites - including Emma the Tiger Shark, Wyland, Guy Harvey, Jim Abernethy and it's hosted by Dr. Sylvia Earle.
This time the team takes students to the Bahamas to introduce them to sharks and shows them what's at risk if we lose sharks.
You'll also witness the dramatic attempt to remove a hook from a Tiger Shark - underwater!
Your Ocean: Sharks - Part 2 will have it's US Premiere in early 2017. More to come from The Shark Task Force, because, why wait a whole year for just one week on sharks?
