About Us

Our motivations and project goals
Whale Shark Diaries is focused on helping to gain a better understanding of the endangered whale shark.

We exist to contribute to collaborative research, conservation and educational activities to increase the level of awareness and protection for this socially and economically important species.

Whale Shark Diaries works in collaboration with Wildbook for Whale Sharks, a Wild Me Project engineered by Jason Holmberg which is a global photo-identification library and visual database of whale shark encounters and of individually catalogued whale sharks. The library is maintained and used by marine biologists and citizen scientists to collect and analyze whale shark sighting data to learn more about these amazing creatures.

We work with schools, colleges and orphanages to help raise awareness with the younger community of La Paz and involve them in our conservation efforts.

We host trips for environmentally conscious individuals and groups to join us for informative trips to learn about the biology, life-history and conservation status of these gentle giants.
