Diver Saves Baby Whale Shark
As scuba divers, we are all ambassadors for the seas. Here’s a touching video of a Russian tourist bargaining for the life of a baby whale shark caught by fisherman in Indonesia.
The video shows fishermen from Ambon, in the east of Indonesia, displaying their catch while the shark lies passively in shallow water.
Locals can be seen taking video on their phones and climbing on the back of the slow-moving fish. After getting off a nearby boat, a diver sees the whale and attempts to intervene to save the shark from its fate. He finds someone who he can communicate with and agrees a price with the fisherman of 1 million rupiah ($75) to have the gentle giant released.
