Sacred Heart play cupid for whale shark
A Perth school is hoping to adopt a whale shark as part of a program to find where the underwater giants go in their search for love.
Sacred Heart College students are excited at the prospect of becoming ‘mums and dads’ to their adopted whale shark as part of Ecocean’s Whale Shake Race Around the World project which will tag and follow the whale shark and hopefully solve the mystery of where they breed.
John Ryan is the school’s Marine Science teacher and told Simon Beaumont on Afternoons that whale sharks have been spotted in Mexico, India and closer to home.
‘We do know that the teenage males highly frequent Ningaloo which is a great tourist destination for West Australians and Internationals,’ Mr Ryan says.
