whale sharks are truly massive and remarkable to look, and admire at. they can move fast and eat lots and lots, but humans are making that part of life hard, these enormous fish aren't eating as much as they use too due too us over-fishing and littering in the oceans.
Whale sharks are massive compared to humans, but we have a huge impact on our oceans and the inhabitants in them as well, even just interacting with them might eventually cause some backlash one way or another. And those affects can be truly damaging to whale shark populations somewhere down the road.
this graph isn't completely related to whale sharks specifically but it is related to the population of the shark family and this means that this has something to do with whale sharks as well. also this shows me that there is a lot of fishing going on with sharks mainly for their fins which whale sharks are typically illegally hunted down and killed for as well. this means that maybe we need to keep an eye on our big friends the whale sharks a bit more often.
i wanted to show you were the whale sharks are more commonly found to be interacting with humans the waters here are perfect. while at the same time this is another reef that could be in possible trouble of being bleached and that could very well mean the loss of lots of ocean life and may just cause these majestic animals to move onto different areas to congregate and mate which possibly mean we wont be able to be in contact with these fish and or be able to study and understand them at all.
Whale sharks, a threatened species that can grow to a massive size and well just like human see human do we like seeing huge outta this world creatures. but over exposure i think is not a good think at all, and these sharks are really seeing humans a lot recently. the habitats that these creatures live in are also slowly being destroyed due to human interaction. so on top of too much interaction with humans, their habitats are at risk too.
We all know The Great Barrier Reefs, but not a lot is said about Australia's western reefs. these reefs also face a 60% chance of bleaching, and when a reef bleaches it is because the corals are stressed by changes in conditions such as temperature, light, or nutrients, then the reefs begin to expel the algae living in their tissues, which in turn causes them to turn completely white. Warmer water temperatures can result in coral bleaching. this is a perfect example of global warming and if we don't end up fixing this soon we may loose our ever important reefs that are extremely vital to the ecosystem.
these fish are truly remarkable and hardly understood, but apparently this isn't stopping illegal, and over fishing. the population of these beasts are dropping and considering on how little we understand them we need to do something about this. because we still have a chance to save our oceans and our fish.
plenty of fish populations are at an all time low and it really doesn't help that we humans kinda tend to not understand that things have to take time to get and they have to be a sustainable resource as well. over-fishing is a great example of that as well because we don't seem to know when we should be giving a population a break to maybe bounce back. but we can actually stop over-fishing, but we really have to b able to change and change fast and hard but that means we all have to start to make changes to how we eat sea food, fish normally and our waste product as well.
