Schools, colleges and universities
We organise project presentations with kids and staff members from local schools where we share information about the biology, life-history and conservation status of the whale sharks. Those that are interested can come and join a boat trip guided by a conservation biologist, where they will gain an insight into the role of individuals working to protect an endangered species. We hope this area of community focus will help educate the youth and young adults, potentially inspiring some future marine conservationists.

Community talks in Baja California Sur
Residents and visitors of La Paz are invited to informative talks where we share global knowledge and discuss some of the remaining mysteries surrounding the species.
We are always seeking partnerships with hotels, resorts and tourism operators in and around La Paz who are interested in providing their guests with free informative talks regarding the biology and conservation status of the species. We also discuss the goals of our research and highlight ways individuals can get involved such as joining us on an informative trip to swim these magnificent animals in their natural habitat.
For whale shark tourism operators, we can also be available to host your own whale sharks trips as a biologist guide giving your guests an informative trip they will always remember.
Interested operators are invited to contact us to discuss a possible partner project.
