At Atlantic White Shark Conservancy we love all sharks! Last summer we had the privilege of spending two days with Rafael de la Para, swimming with whale sharks. Rafael has been instrumental in whale shark research in Mexico. Whale sharks are the largest living fish and can reach lengths of 40+ feet. One of the sharks we encountered, Lucy, was tagged shortly after our trip. Her tag popped off 4 days ago a few miles south of Galveston. Rafael let us know that the tag popped off where the Flower Garden Banks are, making her the first whale shark tagged in ‘Afuera’ Mexico to be documented to travel to the Flower Gardens Banks!
