Isla Holbox – Whale Shark Island

The waters around Isla Holbox off Mexicos Yucatán Peninsula teem with plankton, a feast for giant whale sharks—10-meter giants that gather by the hundreds from June through September. These super-sized, but toothless filter feeders are the core of a local tourism industry, but over-development could threaten this delicate balance. Dr. Sylvia Earle narrates. Kip Evans – Producer and Director of Photography. 2010 Blue Ocean Film Festival non-broadcast winning Film.

México! Amazing underwater views.

If Ecotourism dies, the fishing will have to return to harvest these Whale Sharks. If fishing can’t return there will be an abundance of Mexicans without a way to feed families. Without a way for them to feed families, many could easily turn to drug runners and harvesters. Ahhhhh the big picture..

This is amazing footage. Thanks for posting! The whale sharks are beautiful, so are the flamingos. They actually seem to display their own natural fashion show with the rose of the flamingos and the polka dots of the sharks. I’ve been in the water with lots of sharks, but never with whale sharks and I never knew they were so beautiful and graceful. They are amazing. I love the footage of the diver with shark. and good for the Mexican Government. Thanks for this.
