Description

Snorkeling with whale sharks in Oslob, Philippines was an extraordinary experience to be part of these gentle giants' world. Sadly, they have become dependent on being feed by the locals, making the sharks passive towards humans and vulnerable. It's said to have helped raise awareness of the animals, but at what cost?
