Searching for the popular whale shark of Mafia is an amazing, memorable experience. For the first time, I was out on the ocean in a small boat, holding tight to my life jacket and praying hard for two things: my safety and getting to see a whale shark. I was not disappointed. There was the whale shark, huge and beautiful. My thinking and my passion for the biggest fish changed. I have new perspective now. I will be an ambassador and I hope more people will be good ambassadors for environmental conservation after seeing the conservation work around the Mafia whale sharks.
