A Deep Dive into the World of Ocean Giants

How does a changing climate impact the migration of the worlds largest fish?

Migratory marine megafauna are among the worlds most charismatic species. One of these is the worlds largest fish the whale shark. Whale sharks are found in most tropical and subtropical waters around the world, including at the Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia. What is influencing the movement of whale sharks and what impact does a changing climate have on the future of this ocean giant?
